Dearly beloved in Christ,
I greet you all in the matchless name of our Lord Jesus Christ. It gives me great pleasure to address you through the the website of our parish.
It has been a few months after our coming here and my wife and me are slowing getting to know each of you personally. This is a big parish and I realise itís a great task getting to familiarise but I take this as a challenge to know all of you at the earliest.
Our parish has been growing steadily with the addition of new members every month. It is a great joy to be part of this large and growing parish, one of the largest congregations of Mar Thomites in the world. It is also a joy to see members seeking spiritual growth and fellowship through our worship services and other activities in the parish. The continued commitment, goodwill and support of our members are reflected through their active participation in all spiritual and social activities of this parish. From its humble beginning in 1969 to the present day, this church has never strayed from its tradition of rich Christian spirit, religious affiliation and brotherly concern for others.
We can rejoice and thank God for His blessings on our parish. While receiving Godís blessings, we should remember that we have an obligation to give to the church for Godís work. Jesus taught us to sow bountifully and to give cheerfully. Our gift to the church is an expression of gratitude for Godís gift of love and salvation in Christ.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, let us worship together as a believing community in Dubai and work for the Lord through our life and deeds. Moreover, I request you to uphold the parish, its members and all its activities in your daily prayer.
Please feel free to contact any of the Achens at any time. We will be more than happy to serve you.
Yours in Christís Service
Rev. Thomas Zachariah
