Dear Parishioners and my dear Friends,
Greetings from St. Alphonsa Church, Kankanady, Mangalore!
The first Christmas message was delivered by God, the Heavenly father Himself through the Angelic choir, in that wonderful Night. The son of God was born as the Son of Man in the small town of Bethlehem in the present State of Israel. The Divine message of the first Christmas brought joy to the whole world and the Angel.More.
