Fr. Jacob Madathumpady
Welcome back to Turner’s Cross to Fr. Jacob of Jalandhar Diocese in India, presently studying in Rome.  Fr Jacob was here in July 2017, and will be with us this year for the month of September.  He is from Kerala in Southern India, where the Church has flourished for many years, with full churches and a more than sufficient supply of priests.  Fr Jacob ministers as a missionary priest in the Punjab, 3,000 km to the north, where Catholics are a tiny proportion of the very large population. Ordained ten years ago, he has served as Parish Priest for two Punjabi parishes before being sent to Rome for further studies three years ago. We look forward to his ministry in our parish, it is great to hear the voice of the Church from a faraway land.
