The Triduum in preparation for the Feast of St. Theresa gave an inspiring message each day to the parishioners.
On the first day, Fr. Frazer Mascarenhas preached about the need of building and rebuilding broken relationships on love and unity, as Prophet Haggai addressed the word of Yahweh to the people.
Fr. Rueben on the second day instructed the faithful to take up the 5G path and follow our patroness St. Theresa. He said: be of a Godly nature; be a people of Gratitude not only for blessings received but even in times of sickness and pain; reflect the Generosity of God in our own relationships; Glow with the Light of Jesus within us; become the Good News in the world.
On the third day, Fr. Daniel Barretto reminded us that it is possible to do the little things of everyday life in a great way only if we rely on God and trust in Him.
And to sum up the Mission statement, Auxiliary Bishop Barthol Barretto urged the parishioners to see that no one in our SCCs ever goes through life uneducated, hungry or without medicines. The choirs on all four days and the Khar band that played on the Feast day added a joyful note to the celebrations while the Sacrament of Reconciliation helped us to prepare ourselves spiritually for the Feast.
After the feast mass the parishioners gathered at quadrangle for fellowship and entertainment. Khar band played fantastic music but it was Fr. Nicky who enhanced the celebration with singing Konkani songs. TYM put up a great skit showing ‘How to pray’. Everyone participated in the housie game and played with great enthusiasm to have a fun filled afternoon.
The Parish team also reached out very generously to the homebound, through the Extraordinary Ministers who presented each one of them with a little box of snacks so that they too were included in the celebration of the feast.
