Vicar's Message

Rev. Fr. Thomas Varghese
 
Too often we spend most of our lives making our own plans to better our futures. Too often we try to do what we feel is best for ourselves and our families. However, the Lord reminds us in this verse that His plans are much, much greater than any plans we could ever make for ourselves. Indeed the Bible says, no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no mind can conceive what God has prepared for those who love Him.

When the St Thomas Indian Orthodox parish started its journey 10 years ago, I never conceived that we would be able to accomplish so much in such a short period of time. Today, we have the privilege of worshipping the Lord in our own Church in Wattle Grove. The Lord has immensely blessed our congregation and offered us much more than what we asked for. I am so proud of our dedicated congregation which has worked together for many years to build the Church for our future generations. The Lord has taught us to work together as a family and bring every matter to Him in prayer with our whole heart. By doing this, we look forward to the Lord revealing His greater plan for our Church in the years ahead.
 
On behalf of our congregation, I welcome you to our church website and believe that you will find it most informative. I hope you will be able to join us for the Holy Qurbana service every Sunday or whenever you visit Sydney if you live elsewhere.
 
God bless
