It is with great pleasure that I present this year’s Souvenir, on behalf of the Souvenir Committee, on the occasion of this year’s Christmas Celebration of the Ecumenical Fellowship of the Indian Churches in Pennsylvania (EFICP).
I hope this Souvenir represents a message of unity and love among all the participant churches as we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. The spirit of ecumenism is strong in our Indian community. I wish and pray that this spirit will continue to guide us in the path of stronger unity and brotherly love among our Christians and the society at large. EFICP could donate $8528.00 to help Puerto Rico hurricane victims. Representatives from Puerto Rico came to Philadelphia and received the said amount on the occasion of the Christmas Celebrations of 2017. This year, our charity fund donation will go to help the Kerala flood victims.
The Editorial Committee would like to thank the member churches, individuals and organizations who have contributed their time and resources to make this souvenir a testimony of the spirit of unity that flourishes among the people of Philadelphia region. I sincerely thank the Chairman and the Executive Committee and General Body of EFICP for their commitment and support to the Souvenir Committee in the development of this Souvenir.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Very Happy and Prosperous New year.
