Kuwait, 10 Sep 2018: Kuwait Canara Welfare Association (KCWA), in collaboration with the Konkani Community of the Holy Family Cathedral celebrated the Nativity of our Blessed Virgin Mary, also known as the Monthi Fest on the 9th of September 2018 at the Holy Family Cathedral, Kuwait City.

 

KCWA has been celebrating this feast since its formation in 1988 and Mangaloreans all around the world celebrate this important feast.
Vicar General of AVONA & Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Peter, Rev. Fr. Anthony Lopez, Rev. Fr. Noel D’Almeida, Rev. Fr. Roswin Pires, Rev. Fr. Blany Pinto, Visiting Priest Rev. Fr. Johnson Fernandes and Deacon Sylvester D’Souza along with other clergies blessed the novem and dates at 4:00 pm at the grotto amidst a huge gathering of people followed by the procession to the church for the concelebrated mass in Konkani.

 

The traditional fellowship dinner had been arranged for thousands of devotees gathered on this occasion. Over 3000 devotees took part in the celebration. KCWA’s President Hilary Stevan Rego welcomed the gathering. Sisters of Apostolic Carmel were present on the occasion. Rev. Fr. Roswin recited the grace before dinner. The dinner was prepared by M&M Confectionery.

 

 

The main objective of KCWA in celebrating the Monthi Fest along with the traditional dinner in the Holy Family Cathedral is to provide those who work as house helps and drivers an opportunity to enjoy this feast as one family. We are indebted to His Lordship Bishop Camillo Ballin for having faith in our motto and for giving us the opportunity to serve our brethren.

 

KCWA in a very special way thanks the Konkani Community of the Holy Family Cathedral headed by Rev. Fr. Anthony Lopez. KCWA thanks all those who came forward to help as volunteers – to serve the fellowship dinner, to usher the crowd, and those who supported this event with their generous contribution.

 

The whole event was successfully coordinated by Freya Saldanha & Harry Fernandes with the support from KCWA Managing Committee members.
