MESSAGE FROM OUR PARISH PRIEST
In the hearts of the Syro-Malabar Catholic diaspora, a fiery dream blazes forth—“Our Dream Our Church,” a sanctuary truly our own. Within its sacred walls, the vibrant echoes of the Syro-Malabar liturgy resound, where our faith blooms, and the sacraments of our cherished rite infuse our lives with sanctity. But beyond this, it’s a unifying haven, a community united in bolstering the universal Church while cherishing our distinct identity.
For nearly five decades, the Indiranagar - Halasuru - Syro-Malabar community has nurtured this dream, their spirit unwavering and hope an unwavering flame. Today, they embark on an extraordinary journey, weaving innovation and creativity to manifest their dream.
