Archbishop’s Message

Dear Donors and Friends,
“We have seen His Star in the East and have come to worship Him”. Mathew 2:2.

The wonderful festival of Christmas is here again bringing with it lots of happy moments and good wishes. Christmas comes once a year. During that time, people of all religions come together to worship Infant Jesus. Christmas is not a time nor season, but a state of mind to cherish peace and kindness, to be plenteous in mercy. Christmas is the proof that this world can become a better place, if we have lots of people like you who have filled the hearts of poor children of Archdiocese of Bangalore with happiness and hope being generous in building their lives on a sure foundation of education.

‘Christmas is a time for cherishing those who bring (have brought) blessings to our needy children at ASHA Charitable Trust. Your kind soul is a gift no one can ever match.’ “Let us remember that Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart with love that thinks of others first” says George Mathew Adams. Thousands of poor children from ASHA Charitable Trust smile with gratitude with shining light of education. Today many children have become teachers, engineers, technicians, nurses, towards seminary and religious life and many more are on their way to achieve the desired goal of life through your generous contribution.

Our hearts overflows with joy and love at this Christmas. As we rejoice and celebrate this wonderful season of Christmas, let us not forget to thank baby Jesus for coming into our lives. May this Christmas bring you all the joys of Heaven. May you have angels rejoicing at your doorstep. May you experience the wonder of His abiding love as He guides You and your loved ones through each day of the coming year. I invoke God’s Blessings on you and your loved ones at Christmas and new year-2018.
