Chapel Karunapuram

Inaurguration of new chapel at Karunapuram, India

The inauguration of our chapel at the Formation Centre at Karunapuram (India) was an occasion of great joy. The days of labor and hope had finally come to fruition. We had dreamed of it for years, to have our own proper space for liturgy and prayer. So no words could sufficiently capture our jubilation and satisfaction. ‘We finally have a chapel, and a beautiful one at that’ !!!. Such was our common unexpressed feeling.

  • Guido Gockel mhm returns to the diocese of Miri in Borneo

    Saturday, 2nd August, 2014

    Since my return from Europe I have started to work on my new parish “St. Dominic”. I had the first parish council meeting and got myself installed in the office with the bare essentials - an office desk, easy chair, settee (so I can receive guests), printer, and my own laptop and intent connection through my mobile phone. The parish area has no phone and internet connections because there is not enough demand for it. Within the next few weeks I will have started a schedule for daily Mass, regular hospital visitation, a St. Vincent de Paul Society and Mothers Prayers.

  • Amanecer, a pioneering project for street children in Cochabamba, Bolivia

    Thursday, 17th July, 2014

    Fr Theo Raaijmakers mhm writes: "I am worried about Luis (10) who is often alone at home with his father and the father drinks all the time; there is no mother in the house, and when the father goes out to drink, Luis often goes with him.... I am also worried about Moisés (15) who is now living at home with his father and his brother; there is no mother there either; Moisés is very intelligent, but if we don't do something very soon, things will go wrong with Moisés and also with his brother. I know, I know: we cannot do everything, and I also get only 24 hours a day (there are no exceptions)... But we would like to do as much as possible, we would like to give as many young people as possible a chance for a better future".

  • Living with Hope. Vishunpur, India


    I, Chanikya MEP student, am very glad to write about my experience in Vishunpur Mission, which is placed right in the middle of a forested area, surrounded by beautiful mountains and big tress. First I was shocked by the setting of this place because it’s far behind in terms of living conditions. People still live in mud houses, have open toilets, there are no proper network facilities etc. I felt that this place is not in tune with the rest of the world, which is growing socially and technologically. These are some of my first impressions of the place.

  • Francis effect....Mill Hill effect


    Francis Effect…. MHM Effect echoes the Francis Effect –
    the result of the sum of all we do in the service of our Lord Jesus Christ:
    reaching out, serving the abandoned and those in most need, with humility and joy, with the smell of the sheep full upon them.
    The vision that Pope Francis has for the Church is that it “must be a place of mercy freely given, where everyone can feel welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged to live the good life of the Gospel.”
