At the outset, I would
like to thank you for your effort in developing this excellent site
for the public. I just got shifted from Oman to Saudi Arabia as
part of my Job. After reaching Saudi, I have realised the fact that
people here in this part of the world have less opportunity to learn
and know about our Holy Church as compared to many who resides at
rest of the Gulf countries. You have done a wonderful job and its
indeed a very useful site for people like us here to get connected
with our Church, leaders and its different activiteis. MAY GOD BLESS
YOU ALL With warm Regrads
