  • Betty Carter

    My heartfelt thanks for the Family Primetime Prayertime. It’s 1.30 am for me when this is streamed, so when I can’t make it, I usually replay the program at sometime between 3 and 5 am. Congratulations on the sincere and practical approach to life in this troubled world. I’m not sure of the names of the two priests, which I think are Frs Ashwin and Lance(?). Would like to find out their full names.

    I hope such devotions continue. A wonderful use of social media in your evangelisation. God bless you and your endeavours.

    Please remember my loved ones and myself in your prayers.

  • Melwyn Pinto

  • Agnel Lobo

    Could you please inform me What time is the Novels of Mother of Perpetual Succour on live , so that we can participate during this lockdown.

  • Kunjummen Samuel

    From the year 1979-80 on wards am a devotee to Mother Mary and used to participate in the Novenas of Wednesdays, the favors and blessings received by me and the prayers are many. I affirm that the blessings from these Novenas are abundant through our Mothers intercession to Triune God, Father, Son and Holi Spirit. Its a testing time for all of us and we shall continue to submit our prayers to get rid of this anarchy from COVID-19, hunting the world population. Let us depose ourselves for Mother Mary’s intercession to get rid of this peril.

  • Usha

    Why have you stopped the live streaming of the Novenas. For several weeks I was able to watch the live streaming- and then it stopped.
    Please continue the live streaming for people who live outside India.
    Thank you

  • Ashok K

    God Day! I have really been enjoying & feel extremely blessed for last many months to be able to attend Mass on-line on You Tube. However for past 3-4 weeks I am unable to attend mass on line on You Tube. Has it been removed or is it a glitch on my side.
    I have grown to depend on my Wednesday Date with Mother Mary & miss it a lot!
    Please assist.
    God Bless

  • Agnel Lobo

    I started going for the Our Lady of Perpetual Succor Novenas since 1976 when I was 15 years old and I continue with the same faith that Mother Mary always intercedes for us for all the supplications we present before her. She is our heavenly Mother of all of us.
    St. Michael Church has been my strength in all my problems and weaknesses. It is a special place in my heart .I feel relived everytime i visit the church.

      Faith must serve to compensate.
      Glory, Honour, Adoration.
      Let us sing with one accord,
      Praised be God, Almighty Father,
      Praised be Christ, His Son our Lord,
      Praised be God the Holy Spirit,
      Triune God-head be Adored . Amen.

      Blessed be God
      Blessed be His Holy Name
      Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true Man
      Blessed be the Name of Jesus
      Blessed be His most Sacred Heart
      Blessed be His most Precious Blood
      Blessed be Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar
      Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete 
      Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary most Holy
      Blessed be her Holy and Immaculate Conception
      Blessed be Her Glorious Assumption
      Blessed be the Name of Mary, Virgin and Mother
      Blessed be St. Joseph, her most chaste Spouse
      Blessed be God in His Angels and in His Saints. 


          Mother dearest, Mother fairest,
          Help of all who call on Thee,
          Virgin purest, brightest, rarest 
          Help us, help we cry to thee 


          Mary, help us, help we pray
          Mary, help us, help we pray
          Help us in all care and sorrow,
          Mary, help us, help we pray 

          Mary, help in pain and sorrow
          Soothe those rack’d on bed of pain
          May the golden light of morrow
          Bring them hearlth and joy again. 


          Help our priests, our sisters lowly,
          Help our Pope, long may he reign,
          Pray that we who sing their praises
           May in heav’n all meet again.


          Mary, help the absent loved ones;
          How we miss their presence here,
          May the hand of Thy protection,
          Guard and guide them far and near. 

      ( For Personal use only) 


      In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen 


      Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. 


      Hail Mary , full of grace , the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, JESUS. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. 


      I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into Heven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communication of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the ressurection of the body, and the life everlasting, Amen. 


      Hail, holy Queen Mother of mercy, hail , our life our sweetness and our hope. Thee do we cry poor banished children of Even; to thee do we sigh mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Oh then, our advocate, turn thine eyes of mercy towards us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O merciful, O living, O Sweet Virgin Mary.
