Dubai, 19 September 2010: For the first time ever Mount Rosary Gulf Association celebrated Monti feast in all its splendor . The event was held in Dubai at Al Mas Hotel Apartments. And as expected the party hall was filled with fellow parishioners, all fully enthusiastic to celebrate the birthday of Mother Mary. Monti Feast commemorating the Nativity of our Mother Mary and the blessing of newly produced crop is regarded as a happy family festival where families and communities come together for a joyful celebration.


The programme commenced at 12.30pm with a welcome speech by Ronald Saldanha . Our Parish Priest Rev. Father Philip Neri Aranha’s message to wish all Mount Rosarians residing in UAE was read out on the blessed occasion. The Altar was decorated with flowers around the beautiful image of Mother Mary , where everyone gathered with all children carrying trays of flowers to shower Mother Mary while singing the Hymns “Moriake Hogolsian and Sakkad Sangatha Melyam” which echoed the premises , the rhythm feeling the air creating a blessed ambience.
