... "For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them." --- Matthew 18 : 20

On 29th January 2010, our fourth and newest parish was blessed and canonically erected by His Lordship Camillo Ballin, MCCJ, during the concelebrated Mass in the parish church at Jleeb Al-Shuyouk, Kuwait. The parish has been dedicated to Saint Daniel Comboni, Bishop and Founder of the Congregation of the Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus.

As part of the event, Rev. Fr. Albert Saveriraj, OCD, was installed as the (first) Parish Priest. Rev. Fr. George Chacko and Rev. Fr. Joseph, OCD, are part of the parish team.

This is the occasion the Catholics of Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh and the surrounding areas have been fervently praying for: as one of the faithful joyfully expressed, "Praise and thanks to Almighty God! Great and marvellous are His deeds! It is a great spiritual consolation for us to have a house of prayer and three religious in our midst. We convey our deep gratitude to Bishop Camillo for his vision and thoughtfulness in granting our greatest wish. We implore the great missionary Saint Daniel Comboni to bless and protect our parish and community. As we grow in holiness, may we also grow in unity, day by day."

According to the episcopal decree, areas included in the new Parish are: Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, Dhaieel, Airport, Wista, Subhan and Qurain 1, 2, 3 & 4.

The Comboni parish began as a humble mission centre in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh (Abbassiya) on 24th September 2008 and on that day St. Daniel Comboni was proclaimed its patron. His Lordship Bishop Camillo Ballin, MCCJ, Vicar Apostolic of Kuwait, says, "I chose St. Daniel Comboni as patron because we want this Saint to intercede on our behalf for a church in Abbassiya." A special Novena to Saint Daniel Comboni is currently being recited in all our parish churches on Thursdays for this particular intercession. Saint Daniel Comboni, Pray for us!

Through the intercession of Our Lady of Arabia and all the Saints, may the Lord bless our new parish, our bishop, clergy, religious and faithful!

DECREE

Since the Catholic inhabitants of Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, presently under the Holy Family Parish, Safat, require an independent parish, after much consideration and after consulting the priests of the Vicariate, I, hereby, establish Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, comprising of Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, Dhaieel, Airport, Wista, Subhan and Qurain 1, 2, 3, 4, as a Parish, in terms of Canon 515 of the Code of Canon Law, dedicating the Parish Church in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh to St. Daniel Comboni.

Given at the Curia of the Vicariate under my seal and signature on January 29, 2010.
