About Me

My name is Mathew Thomas. I was born in the Village of Kumarakom, the District of Kottayam, and the State of Kerala in India. I was baptised after 10 days after my birth and also had Holy Communion and confirmation on 18th May, 1990 by Arch Bishop Joseph Powathil in my Parish Church of St. John Nepumsen’s Vadakkumkara, Kumarakom in India.

I started my first job in the UK as a Care Assistant in a Nursing Home and Shop Assistant in Sainsbury’s super market Ltd, Chichester on March 2003 and I left on February 2009. Also worked as Finance Assistant in St. Richards Hospital, Chichester. It was very nice to work in different Country and different culture. I made  friendship with colleagues and usual customers. Later I thought while I was doing Jesus’s Ministry to  start a new career as a Care Assistant in Hampshire County Council because I love to care who ever are in need of comforting and help.

 

As part of my spiritual ministry, this is the best job in my opinion to practice the seven corporal works of mercy. Also I can pray for the patients in my spirit and mind. I’m still working as a full-time night care assistant there where the management is very supportive for spirituality and they are using me for who ever need spiritual help. For example, spending time by praying with patients on the end of life care. As well as arranging Holy Communion and funerals for Catholic patients. I am really enjoying my job.

In 2005, There was a turning point happened in my life, one night our Lord Jesus Christ was appeared in front of me. Jesus showed me my whole life in a vision. I filled with his love. Around 3 years every night Jesus visit me taught me lots of things. Jesus asked me to work for him. That’s the way On April 2005, by the help of Jesus I started a prayer group for Indian Catholics living in Chichester, Yapton and Littlehampton and started Holy Mass in Chichester, Yapton and Littlehampton following the Syro-Malabar Rite. By the  grace of God I  started to preaching Gospel in different prayer groups in different parts of England and started leading and conducting Spiritual Retreats.  God blessed me abundantly and sent me many places for witnessing him.

 

My wife is so prayerful and she gives me lots of support. We do pray together. Also praying with our children and doing the formation for them.img_7742
