This is a clarification on Fr Michael Sitaram’s status, with reference to Point 3 of the Chancery Notice CHN/CN/2016/020 issued on 22 September 2016:
“Fr Michael Sitaram has been appointed as Parish Priest to the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes for a term of six  years with effect from 15 September 2016.”
As of 15 September 2016, Fr Sitaram is the Parish Priest of both the Church of St Vincent de Paul (SVDP) and the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes (OLOL). He will step down as SVDP’s Parish Priest after Easter 2017.
In the meantime, Fr Sitaram will continue to be stationed at SVDP and will oversee OLOL from there. Matters regarding these two parishes should be referred to Fr Sitaram or his respective parish teams.
We ask for your continued support, charity and prayers for those who are assuming new offices in the coming months.
