It is with great pleasure and humility that I want to thank the IACA members for electing me to serve as your next President for 2019.
I would like to especially thank the past president Harold D’souza, and the committee for their great achievements in the last 2 years with IACA .
I take this opportunity to welcome the new committee members and look forward to working with you. Let us therefore freely share our insights and expertise to move IACA forward in the coming year and further promote the devotion to Our Lady of Vailankanni.
IACA has many goals, enriching the social and spiritual lives of its members, promoting youth activities, and expanding the faith by installing a new oratory of Our Lady of Vailankanni at Mother Seaton’s Shrine in Emittsbury. Together, with your help and support we can achieve and complete this project.
Every first Saturday of the month, at the Basilica of the National Shrine in the Crypt Church we recite the Novena to our Lady of Vailankanni. Starting at 3.30pm with the EC meeting, followed by Rosary, Holy Mass and Novena. Members from all communities are encouraged to participate in the first Saturday of the month celebration.
God bless you all, and may Our Lady of Vailankanni shower on you and your families good health, peace and happiness.
