A Guide to the Holy Qurbono


After overwhelming requests from Sunday School Programs across the diocese , the National Sunday School Association (MSOSSA) with the gracious assistance of Archbishop Mor Titus Yeldho has released the book, A Guide to the Holy Qurbono. 
 
We have often attended the Holy Qurbono many times, but never realized the depth and meaning like this! With simple explanations, beautiful pictures and valuable insight this book brings to life the splendor of the Holy Qurbono. You will witness the unfolding of Christ's greatest depiction of love through His birth, life and death and more importantly you will experience how He can change you.
 
For inquiries or information to obtain a copy please contact Malankaraoffice@gmail.com or call (845) 364-6003. Please consider a nominal contribution to the National Sunday School program of $10 to cover the printing of the book.
