Our Lady of the Rosary Parish Doha, Qatar  

Posted by Heisan


This is the design of the new Our Lady of the Rosary Parish Church here in Doha, Qatar. The church here is run by the Franciscan Missionaries from India and the Philippines. The new parish accomodates all the Catholic Rites that are present here in Doha. We have here a Maronite Catholics, Syro-Malabarese Rite Catholics and the Roman Rite Catholics all belongs to this parish. It is of joy that all the Rites of the Catholic Church is being celebrated here in these new Parish and what a great work of the Holy Spirit indeed. I was able for the first time to observe the Maronite Rite of the Holy Mass being celebrated and the Syro-Malabarese rite and it is very much a new experience of being a true catholic in the sense of the word because of the different traditions of the Church I have encountered here and it is the same though different in it's cultural orientations. Praise the Lord for the presence of the Church here in this part of the world. Pray that all the faithful here be a light and a beacon of the Gospel of love and peace.

Yes I will do it but as of now the construction is on going and no one is allowed to enter the site except the Parish Priest and the construction people for security reasons. But a few description for your information. As of now the foundations and pillars are being constructed but we are still continuing to give in as much as we can give to finance it's continued construction. And I know God would provide for it we trust in His Divine Providence. We need your continued prayers for these great work here. Thanks in advance!

Is there a way for Catholics to support this parish financially? Please let me know, if there is.

We will pray for the presence of Our Lord and the intercession of Our Lady on your behalf!
