Santhekatte-Kallianpur, 05 Jan 2021: The festive Christmas season still continued beyond New Year, especially in Mount Rosary Church as it geared up to celebrate the Annual Parish Feast. The traditional Vespers were held on the previous evening as the parishioners and relatives assembled in the spacious Church to offer prayers, on Tuesday, 5th January, at 6.00 p.m.


After the blessings of well decorated palkin housing the statue of the patroness, our Lady of Holy Rosary, at the School corridors, adjacent to the main entrance to the Church, was brought to the Church in a colourful and disciplined procession, with live performance by the High School Band, and with devotional prayers, few holding candles etc by the faithful.


As the choir sung the melodious entrance hymn, all assembled in and around the Church, keeping the safe distance and wearing masks. Rev. Fr. Joachim DSouza, OFM Cap. was the main celebrant of the evening, with our Vicar Rev. Dr. Leslie C D’Souza and Asst. Priest Rev. Fr. Steevan Fernandes. While breaking the word of God, he beautifully narrated the importance of Holy Scriptures in the family life, which guides us with self discipline, a life with love and compassion and justice in the society. In brief he emphasised the devotion of Mother Mary and reciting of Holy Rosary everyday in the family and the peace, favours and contentment derived from it.


In the followed solemn benediction of the Holy Sacrament, he touched the heart of the faithful with soft, chosen words and thanked, dedicated and raised our prayers to Almighty Lord.




Though, the normal festive mood among the children and youth was missing, compared to previous years, both interiors and exteriors of the Church were well decorated with fresh flowers and lighting and the enthusiastic ICYM and YCS made some arrangements to have a Goat Draw and there were couple of Ice Cream stalls, mitai, masala churmuri to give a feel and fragrance of festivities in the Church Compound.


In the beginning Parish Priest Rev. Dr. Leslie C. DSouza, warmly welcomed all and gave a brief introduction of the main celebrant Fr. Joachim Souza and informed the scheduled proceedings and rituals in the evening.


St. Vincent D’Paul Society which is doing a yeomen service for years in the parish arranged to sell candles and the income generated and the days collection was utilised exclusively for the construction of a new house for a poor family in the parish.


Tomorrow Wednesday 6th January, 2021, Thanks giving Festal Grand Mass will be con-celebrated at 10.30 am, by the Rector of Milagres Cathedral, and the Dean of Kallianpur Varado, V. Rev. Fr. Valerian Mendonca.
