We have received this message from Father;

I am a diocesan priest in the diocese of Salem, Tamilnadu, southern side of India. A priest of 13 years had been appointed so far in 3 parishes as parish priest. Now my designation is the diocesan secretary for 6 TNBC commissions for the diocese of Salem, namely Commission for Basic Christian Community, Family commission, Bible commission, Laity commission, Liturgy commission and Christian right movement. I have to visit all 60 parishes almost everyday and gather people for BCC. A volunteer group consisting of 15 members help me in this process on a rotation basis. Whenever we go to the parishes people expect from us to do something since our diocese consists of many poor people. Sure that we are unable to dispense their financial expectation we are giving them rosaries, prayer cards, bibles sometime, etc. So it would be very helpful for our people if they are given rosaries to pray to Our Lady. Kindly help us.


Carmelite Provincial House

This is the centre for the Carmelite Friars in Tamil Nadu. The above information about the area applies here. The Fathers do a great deal of work, they train priests, run schools, technical schools, Parishes and have a centre for Carmelite spirituality. Rosaries, Crucifixes and medal would be appreciated.

First of all take my prayerful greetings and best wishes. Fr. Mark Andrew Khongjee of the Archdiocese of Shillong, Meghalaya, India. I am working in the seminary. I go also to the villages for Holy Mass on Sundays. We have 80 boys in the seminary. I take care 5 villages consisting of about 3000 families. I am a poor diocesan priest. Our people also are very poor. We are known as Khasi tribal people. Our people are very religious. They have great devotion to Our Blessed Mother Mary. People come to me and ask for scapulars and rosaries. They wanted to wear them on their neck. We cannot buy ROSARIES as we are all poor people.
Dear precious friend at ROSARY MAKING and gracious donors, I am writing requesting to you to ask whether it would be possible for you to provide free ROSARIES for me. The ROSARIES which you are going to send to me I will give them to the people so that they can pray and wear on their neck and express their faith externally. We believe in the power of the ROSARIES.  We want to pray for peace in the world. Your willingness to help out wherever there is a need is greatly appreciated even if you do not know us personally. 
On the days when it seems like all hope is lost; On the days when we find ourselves struggling with the most simple things in life; In these days we found a ray of light in you my friend: good, caring and thoughtful that you are. It is wonderful that you would never ignore the cries for help of anyone and that you are attuned to the concerns of even the smallest individuals who are struggling to survive.
This assistance is for us a warm and bright ray of light representing good and caring people who are attentive to the difficulty of the poor and needy.  Being that our needs are many, this aid helps us greatly. God bless you and Mary our Mother pray for us all. I thank you and cherish you.
Yours Faithfully
Fr. Mark Andrew Khongjee
