Father Raju has been transferred...we will post his new shipping address shortly.
Dear Loving Benefactor,Greetings of love, joy and peace to you and May the Almighty shower His abundant blessings upon you and your near and dear ones with good health, prosperity and Success. May the Blessed Virgin Mary intercede for you and help you to succeed in your mission. It's a great privilege, an opportunity and a blessing for me to introduce to you who are so generous, kind and loving towards the poor, down trodden and Catholic Church.
Dear Loving Benefactor, I am Fr. GODAVARTHI MARIA RAJU ordained priest in 2005. Now I am appointed as the parish priest of Vuyyuru parish of Vijayawada Diocese and this is my first appointment. Vuyyuru parish consists of 26 mission stations with 8200 Catholics. Our Catholics are from labour community, poor and they work as seasonal daily laborers and earn $1 per person per day which comes Rs.40 in Indian currency. My Sunday collection is around $9 U.S. dollars. All our Catholics are from Dalit community who are treated as untouchables by majority. Majority of our children are illiterates and they are child labourerers. But they are strong and firm in their Catholic faith In our parish I am encouraging Devotion to Mary and I am insisting on daily praying of Rosary both in the prayer huts and in the catholic homes.
Our Catholics come and ask me for Rosaries for free of cost because they cannot afford to buy a Rosary, or a religious article and statues in the village chapels. For the coming month of October I requested all the Catholic families to pray Rosary with out fail and they should conduct a procession to Our Lady at the end of Month with big celebration.
Dear Loving Benefactor, you can understand the situation of a newly ordained and newly appointed parish priest. I am a poor parish priest with no help and financial support. I have no benefactors and I have to maintain the whole parish with Sunday collections I get and a little help from the Diocese. I am in despair, finding difficult and struggling with the situation. I have plans and ideas but no financial support.
Dear and loving Friends,
I am Fr K Arulappa from the diocese of Eluru, Andhra Pradesh, India. I am in a mission parish and my parishioners are from a tribal community. There are 6 mission stations and among these 6 mission stations 4 stations have chapels and the rest have only places, not even prayer huts. My parishioners were once catching snakes and living on that. Now they have stopped that and go for daily wage earning. Their children have no education. Therefore "Blessed Mother Teresa Orphanage" is started and there are at present 45 less fortunate and marginalized children. Whatever you provide I make use of that for my mission work. More than that I will be happy to receive holy mass intentions and I will celebrate the masses with grateful heart and pray for you too.
With sincere thanks in advance, lots of love, all good wishes and prayerful regards, I remain.
Yours in the service of Infant Jesus, Mother Mary and Joseph

I would like to introduce myself. I am Fr.Charles Antony, parish pastor of Rebbavaram, Khammam diocese, Andrapradesh, India. Along with me, there are two more priests who assist me in my pastoral work, namely Fr. Thomas, Fr. Matthew Varaprassada Raju and also two more religious brothers and sisters to help me for my pastoral work namely Catechist sisters of St. Ann and Marian brothers. In my parish there are 14 villages distant from 15 to 20 kilometers. Most of my faithful are coolies, bounded laborers who go for daily work and get rupees 50 to70 as their livelihood. Many of the families are joint family system, unable to educate their children to come up in their life. On the whole, we meet them all, during late night for their spiritual nourishment, like mass, prayers, administering sacraments. Since it is a poor parish we are unable to provide them rosaries and religious articles. I humbly request you to consider this request to promote Catholic faith.Please help me in this regard. I will be grateful to you through out my life.
I thank you in advance Yours sincerely, Fr. Charles Antony (parish pastor)

I am very glad to say that I am the great devotee of mother Mary. Even now in my personal and private time, especially in the journey times, I continue to recite rosary individually. But after coming to this interior and tribal parish, I noticed that the devotion to mother Mary and the faith element– “through Mary to Jesus”- is missing. The reason for this is because of the great competition and domination of the Protestantism. It’s shocking for me to know that even in this small area there are nearly 18 denominations, preaching falsely about Catholicism and mother Mary
Thus I desire and wish to start the MARIAN DEVOTION in my parish.

I am a Jesuit priest working in Gujarat, India. Whenever I go around the mission centres here in Gujarat or go for my home visit to South India many catholic faithfuls ask me for a rosary. I am not able to fulfil their request and I feel embarrassed of my inability to give them a rosary so that they could pray the rosary. I came across this (your) website and I thought of writing to you and request you to help me in this. I would be grateful and happy if you could send me some packets of rosary.

This is Co-Pastor Kiran Kumar Thumma, working the diocese of Guntur in Andhrapradesh, INDIA. I am appointed as a Co-Pastor of Amaravathi mission parish. Our Bishop is Dr. Gali Bali. We have nearly 1500 families spread in 10 substations in our Parish. Though it is a mission station the devotion to our lady is becoming very popular especially among children and women. Since the economical status of Parishioners is below poverty line, they are able to buy the rosaries from out side. Since it is a mission area I do not get any mass intentions here and i have no source of other income to provide them with holy rosaries and other sacramentals. It is becoming an up hill task for me to conduct various programs in the parish. Therefore, I kindly request you to send the possible number of rosaries to distribute in my parish to increase Marian devotion. I also kindly request you to help me out to carry on the good works of the Lord by supporting me with some Holy Mass Intentions if Possible. Thanking you and praying for you all.

I am a volunteer Catholic Chaplain for the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department. I serve at a 1700 inmate maximum security facility in Pontiac, MI. We receive numerous request for rosary instruction which we provide. Our resources are extremely limited and we have a great need for both rosaries and instructional pamphlets. Our process is to provide inmates with written information first. Once they have studied the material we meet with them individually for instruction. If they are serious about their commitment to pray the rosary we provide them with a rosary.
For security reasons the rosary cannot contain any metal parts:
ONLY WHITE LIGHTWEIGHT CORD WITH BLACK OR BLUE COLORED BEADS ONLY
( Regular Beaded Cord Rosary -NOT all-cord knotted rosary)
