Farewell Message from Fr. Nevin Attokkaran


How fast one month has elapsed! July 30th, Monday will be the completion of my one months ministry at St. Peter and Paul’s Parish, in Portlaoise. It has been a great joy to minister to all of you. Your support and understanding have made my ministry a very easy and thoroughly happy time and I have really enjoyed my stay in Portlaoise. I thank God for you all everyday and all of you are constantly in my prayers and love. I express a sincere word of thanks from the bottom of my heart to each and every one of you for all that you have done for me personally during these days.

I am grateful to Msgr. John Byrne and to all the Priests of the Parish for your friendship and support. I really appreciate all the staff members who render a marvelous work in this Parish. I greatly acknowledge the active participation of so many in the Parish and the way in which the use of modern technology plays such a huge role in Parish-ministry here. The daily Eucharistic adoration in the Parish Church has given me a very unique image of Portlaoise Parish. I would like to acknowledge you all for the constant commitment and generous help you give to your Parish on a daily basis. It was an enriching experience for me to be part of this Parish if only for such a short period of time.

I hope to defend my doctoral thesis on Family Relationship in December 2012 in Rome and I invite each and everyone of you to Rome and you are most welcome to visit me in India too. Kindly keep me in your prayers. Once again thank you all for your great support to me. You are all in my prayers and thoughts. God bless you all!
