On Saturday after Qurbana and refreshments, it is planned to have a Outdoor Activity with short hiking trip to Kolsås toppen. This is a very popular climbing adventure and is commonly done by families. Only walking up is required and no rock climbing :). Kolsås toppen is approx 340 m above sea level ( at the scenic point). The starting point of the hike is approx 10-12 minutes drive from Church. All those normally taking public transport will be provided transport.

Please bring a good pair of shoes and dress in layers for we do not know how the weather could be on the day.

Dear All

Thank you very much for registering. St.Marys Church cordially welcoming you and family to this year's Summer camp at Rjukan.

As we are very close to Church Summer Camp Event, I would like to share some practical things which needs to be taken care when we are in the camp site.

Camp starts with dinner on 10th June Friday. We will be ending the camp on Sunday by serving breakfast around 08.30 AM. We have distributed the responsibility of preparing food for the camp evenly to everyone. Please see the attached list.If there are any ambiguities in your assigned tasks, please contact each other internally and rearrange accordingly.

Some practical things to be considered:

1. Everyone has to bring their own bed sheet, duvet cover and pillow cover. There is a possibility to rent these from the camp site by paying.

2. Everyone has to bring essential toiletries .

3. There will be a charge of 900 NOK, if the apartment is not cleaned when you are leaving on Sunday.

4. We are planning to climb Gaustatoppen. Still there is some snow/ice on the top of Gausta.Remember to take jackets and winter shoe.

Camp Site address:

Kvitåvatn Fjellhytter,


N-3660 Rjukan

Looking forward to meet each and every one!

Posted by [email protected] on June 14, 2015 at 3:05 PM

Following the tradition from last years, Team Santa again visited the beautiful people of Oslo this year bringing the good news and spirit of Christmas to their homes. Rev. Fr Eldhose along with team Santa thanks all who welcomed them into their homes with all the warmth. May God bless you and your families abundantly. In addition, this year we also visited Lindeberg Old age home and sang carols including Norwegian carols, bringing to them smiles and happiness. Team Santa signs off this year's carol on a postive note knowing that your generous contributions will once again go a long way in making significant difference in lives of several people.

Thanks to all of you and especially each one in team Santa, who put in a lot of effort to come together again to make Christmas Carols 2014 a great success!

Thank you Fr Eldhose Vattaparambil for the blessed Qurbana! Happy that so many could could join this time!

Congratulations Gregary to be elevated to serve the mass. We also started the Sunday Bible class for the kids to learn our Lord's teachings and prayers.

Another milestone!

Can't believe that it is soon 5 years since we first began Malayalam service in Norway and God has blessed the church to grow in strength. In January 2015, we will celebrate the 5th anniversary and we look forward to seeing you all then.

God Bless you all!
