Congratulation to Fr. Makhan

Fr Michael MakhanAlthough Fr Michael Makhan had indicated months ago that he wished no special public celebration for his golden jubilee of ordination, the clergy of the Archdiocese wish to publicly note this most special occasion.

Michael Makhan, Disciple and Missionary, may God continue to richly bless you.
