About Us

The Tamil Community was established in 1995 with a Vision of “Christ centered community that walks in the word of the Lord”. The community is committed to serve all Tamil speaking persons and to evangelize to others by sharing God’s love and spreading the Good News of Salvation.

In order to both grow and meet the spiritual needs of the people, Tamil community serves the following services:

  • Mass in Tamil
  • CNC Rosary & testimony sharing
  • Pongal the Harvest festival
  • Praise & worship in Tamil, St Anthony’s devotion in Tamil
  • Christmas Caroling
  • Stations of the Cross & shadow play and
  • Praying for one another and so on.

We are both humbled and honored in Christ Jesus as we are have become a much bigger team today; working to encourage and bring in more families to the mass and to participate in various events of our Parish.

Proverbs 27:17 says, ‘Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another’. Tamil community will continue to embark on this journey sharpening the Spiritual lives of people through Christ Jesus.

Christ Centered Community that walks in the Word of the Lord.
