Cuddalore – God may not give us an easy journey to the Promised Land but he will give us a safe one. Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish arranged a Lenten pilgrimage on March 26th. Fourteen churches arranged to mediate on the way Jesus chose to redeem the universe. One hundred people gathered on two buses and traveled to three different dioceses. Special prayers were said for the Church, construction of a new church, our congregations, and the faithful. Reflections were made at each station to help the people understand that life passes by very quickly, and that they ought to think more of how to love than how to live.
Parish Offers Day Care Center
Cuddalore – Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish has a Day Care Center where six students gather daily for rehab. To enhance this ministry of love, many other groups join as one family with spiritual and material assistance. These groups include the Franciscan movement, the St. Vincent de Paul movement and Sahothara Vazhvu Sangam, who helps the mission with greater kindness and love. One example is their timely support for a student named Daniel, who was suffering from an accident. Their deeds of kindness, words of love and material help supported him in his suffering. The Center also acknowledged Rev. Fr. Visuwasam, SdC., for arranging the tailoring class for the students. As a part of their training, they sewed bags for the catechism children to carry their rosaries and prayer books.
