K.D.Jola, Andhra Pradesh: “Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,” is the response of a God-fearing person through the works one is doing. It is the same experience of mine at KD Jola Parish. It is a parish located in Srikakulam Diocese, Andhra Pradesh led by Montfort Fathers for so many years and God is making known his glory through various works. On 14th February 2020, a new house of God named after St. Charles Borromeo Church at Nayuduguda village and on 15th February 2020 another God’s house named after St. Raphael Church at Arikakoradi village at KD Jola parish was inaugurated and blessed by Rev. Fr. J. Joseph, SMM (The provincial superior of Indian Vice-province).
In both places, we had the welcome dance by youth girls followed by the blessing of the chapels, the litany of the saints, blessing of new religious articles, statues and Holy Eucharistic celebration. The Holy Mass was celebrated by Rev. Fr. Kiran SMM in Savara which is a local language of the faithful here and the homilies were delivered by Rev. Fr. Balashouri, SMM and Rev. Fr. Anand, MF our neighboring Parish priest. After the Holy Eucharist, we had a short felicitation program followed by a fellowship meal served for all and departed the villages by giving glory to God for His marvelous works among his chosen and God-fearing people.
It was a very delightful moment to see our Montfort fathers, Montfort sisters, Montfort brothers who presented themselves to pray for faithful besides other diocesan priests, religious priests, and nuns from Srikakulam Diocese. At this joyful moment Fr. Ravi Thappeta, SMM (KD Jola Parish Priest), expresses his deepest gratitude to God and to Fr. J Joseph, the Provincial Superior, for his support towards the mission. Special thanks to Dr. Karl Anspach from Germany for his financial help towards Nayuduguda Church and Mr. Jobert Anjelo and Anu family, Talackotoore house, Thrissur from Kerala for their help towards Arikakoradi Church. All Glory to God.
Fr. Ravi Thappeta, SMM
