A Thank You From Fr. Ashok

Fr. Ashok Veerabathina

I wish to express my sincere gratitude for the love and support I received during the recent passing of my parents.

Your words of comfort, prayers, cards, and financial support were deeply appreciated, and the memory of your kindnesses will be with me always.

As we wére unable to have a funeral mass in India for my parents, it was important to me to celebrate their funeral.

This was made possible through the generous gifts of many in their participation and attendance, including many priests from across the Island.

The community support  and that of the parishes of St. Joseph, St. Malachy and St. Peter’s were a blessing to me during this difficult time.

Thank you and God Bless.


“I will be forever grateful for the understanding and support I received from the Diocese of Charlottetown and, in a particular way, from my ‘brothers in Christ’, in the days following the death of my dear parents, John and Mary Veerabathina. 

Your words of comfort, your presence and your participation in the Funeral Mass will remain a fond memory that will be with me always.” 

Yours in Christ, Ashok Veerabathina
