We visit Salmaniya Hospital every Friday for one hour (4:00PM -5:00PM). We gather at the Sacred Heart Church compound at 03:30PM after a small personnel prayer in Adoration Chapel and a group prayer in front of Grotto , we move to hospital at 3:45 PM . As per directions of the leader, we divide our group in to different subgroup, so as to cover the wards as much as possible and start visiting at 4:00PM. We target mainly Indian patient as we have limited time and resources and occasionally cover other nationalities. We note down the names of patients who need care and prayer. Team Leader collect the names & forward to all group members as well as to BMCC to announce during 7:00PM Malayalam Mass. We remember these names and pray daily during our family personnel prayer . Some members of our team visit on other days as well for further follow up in case they feel the need. We also assist financially in case an emergency arise with the permission & support of our Spiritual Director Fr.Saji and give assistance legally by liaising with our contacts at the Indian Embassy and other charitable organizations.
We arrange prayer meetings in one of the class rooms at 3:00PM on First Friday of every month. That prayer meeting starts with rosary and ends with discussions with valuable suggestions from fellow members . We ask our Lord to help us continue this mission and pass the baton to new members as they join.
