Diaconate Ordination of Subdeacon George Parayil

St. Thomas Syro-Malabar Catholic Diocese of Chicago Invites You to The Diaconate Ordination of Subdeacon George Parayil

Sunday, May 15th At 9:45am CST

Mar Thoma Sleeha Cathedral, Bellwood, Il

On Sunday, May 15, Br. George Parayil will be ordained a Deacon in the Syro Malabar Church at his home parish here at the Cathedral. He will be the first person from our very own parish receiving the Diaconate. As someone who was born here and raised in our community, we pray for him as our own son or brother.

Please support Br. George in his journey to Priesthood by helping us prepare a Spiritual Bouquet. You may do any prayer (Rosary, Holy Qurbana, Adoration, Hail Mary, Divine Mercy Chaplet, etc.). We will be tracking the number of prayers done here: tinyurl.com/BrGeorgePrayer
