COVID-19 Precautions

Dear Parishioners,

Given that the spread of the virus is still a cause of concern and with the Federal Government direction to not have more than 10 people gather together, our Bishop Mar Jacob Angadiath has asked all Parishes not to have Public Celebration of Holy Mass.

So we will not have Mass starting on Friday March 20, 2020 until further notice, at the Syro-Malabar Church, Boston.

We are live streaming Holy Qurbana on our YouTube Channel every Sunday at 10 AM and Fridays at 7 PM followed by Way of the Cross. We are requesting all to attend the Holy Qurbana through our YouTube Channel or through the website and TV channels shared to you ( EWTN (8:00 AM, 12 PM), Shalom TV (10:00 AM) or Catholic TV ( 10 AM, 4 PM, 7 PM) ).

We want our community to be safe and are hoping that all are taking adequate precautions. Please feel free to reach us at anytime for assistance.

You and your family is specially remembered at the Altar everyday
