June 9 : The Tenth day Novena in honour of St. Anthony was celebrated at St. Anthony's Ashram, Jeppu on June 09, 2019.

Fr Nizel Joy D’Souza from St Joseph Vaz, Mudipu Parish offered the Holy Mass for the intention of couples preparing for marriage.

The Sunday being the feast day of the descent of the Holy Spirit Fr Lizel preached a homily on the Holy Spirit the person of Triune God. The descent of the Holy Spirit changed the life of Apostles of Jesus. The timid and the frightened Apostles were filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. They went forth preaching the death and resurrection of Jesus not minding the impending suffering. They even died as martyrs while giving witness to Jesus.

Fr Lizel said that all those who desire the gift of Holy Spirit receive it and he called on the devotees to seek the same. He also prayed for couples preparing themselves for marriage that they may be filled with the gift of Holy Spirit that they may make good decisions in life may always be guided in the right path.

Fr Onil D’Souza the Director of the Ashram conducted the Chaplet and the Rosary. Fr Thrishan D’Souza the Assistant Director conducted the novena. Hundreds of people participated in the devotion.
