Words are not sufficient to express my gratitude to you, friends, for the overflowing expression of love and care you expressed toward me last Sunday on the occasion of my send off. My heart is so full knowing that our mutual interaction has been beneficial to many of you. Throughout my ministry with you I focused on preaching and teaching the word of God. Ultimately, it is the power of the word that made the most difference. As I take leave of you, I beg you to continue to stay on the word of God for it has power to lead you to Life in the Spirit of God.


May God's love abide in your hearts until we meet again. 

Fr Jaison Mangalath, S.V.D.
