John M. Monteiro, Lay Pastoral Associate
I am originally from India. Worked as a Manager in multi-national shipping companies in the Middle East for nearly half of my life. I have been called by the Lord a few times. First, when I finished my secondary school education, I had a call and joined the seminary, but this was short-lived. Secondly, when I was in Dubai the Pastor tapped on my shoulder and said, “John you are a Lector from tomorrow”. Since I was involved in all the Ministries, including Secretary to the Pastoral Council till 2016. Thirdly, was at St. Timothy’s, when Fr. Roger initially asked me to help in the Church. I am a Lay Pastoral Associate at St. Tim’s from September 2017, assisting the Pastor and the Associate Pastor in many facets of the Parish, overall coordinator of all the Ministries, Volunteer screening coordinator, and serving the Lord, of course.
