My schoolmate and family friend Mr. Isudas Peter Parmar passed away today. He is survived by his wife Usha, son Terrance and daughter Steffi. May God rest him in peace and grant comfort to his family and friends. 

 

After we moved to Mariampura in 1969, I was admitted to St. Mary’s High School in 9th standard. I became friends with Isudas and Philip who were my classmate. Our friendship became a family friendship and we had very close relationship with both families. He was always there when needed for personal need and or family. Couple of weeks ago my sister told me that you wanted to talk to me so I tried to call you several times but nobody answered the phone. I am sorry I was not able to talk to you. May God rest you in peace. Isudas, you will forever be missed but I know in the right time, I will meet you again.

Thank you Fr. Jerry Sequeira S.J. of Gujarat Sahitya Prakash

Urgent prayers are needed for a young, bright, mother of 8 months old boy – Raajal Job.

Life has never been promised to be easy, and as we get older or go through accidents we sometimes have to go through certain medical procedures or even surgery. Some of these are minor fixes and some are extremely serious undertakings. In such a situation we need two things – an excellent medical team to perform the medical procedures and prayers – give these situations to God and trust in Him through it all.

 

Raajal Job, a young bright, intelligent girl was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. She had a brain surgery and it was a success. But she is struggling to recover. The medical team did their job and now we need to do ours with our prayers. Please pray for her full and fast recovery.

Her mother and siblings Prashant, Amol and Sneha are on their way to Toronto from India, to be with Raajal, Sidhartha and Viraaj. Raajal married Sidhartha in 2012 and just gave a birth to Viraaj in June 2015.
