Mangaluru, 19 July 2023: On Sunday, July 16, the Ladies Association of St Lawrence Church - Bondel organised Monsoon Milan at 12 p.m. at St Lawrence Church hall. The programme began with a prayer invoking God’s Blessings. Mrs Avita Mascarenhas, president of the Ladies Association, Welcomed the gathering. Mrs Ldywin Dsilva composed a special song for Aati season, sung by Ldywin and Lanuwin D’Cunha on this occasion, which made everyone nostalgic.


In his keynote address, Rev. Fr Andrew Leo D’Souza, parish priest, congratulated the President and Members of the Ladies Association. An event like this creates awareness among the people of our parish about the customs, uniqueness, life, sufferings, and special features of the people of our community. Fr explained the important role played by Ladies Association members in the parish as well as for the welfare of the family. We can find a sense of fulfilment of the purposes behind these things only when we carefully retain the culture, refinement, and traditions handed over to us by the previous generation and hand them over to the next generation."


Guest of Honour Fr Joachim Fernandes, Diocesan Director of Small Christian Community, who passionately spoke, he said this event would not have happened without the support of the Association Members. Women play an important role in a parish society, and they make us feel special. He also spoke about keeping our culture alive and teaching the younger generation values and traditions. By organising such events, our youngsters will learn about the food that was prepared in the olden days.
