Jan. 06, 2016: The Novena to Infant Jesus was inaugurated in a very traditional way by hoisting the flag on a Arecanut tree (maadi) by Most Rev Monsignor Edwin Pinto at 11.30 am on 6th January 2016. Monsignor Pinto in his inaugural address exhorted everyone to follow the beatitudes of our Lord and serve those in need, after the example of Mother Theresa who is already in heaven. Look at the needy around you and give generously, not only out of your abundance, but especially sacrificing something which is dear to you, he said.




The Novena which began today will continue till the 14th of January with mass and novena every day at 4.30pm. There is special day for prayer on Friday 13th January conducted by Fr Franklin and his team. This day also will be observed as a day of offerings(vojem) in preparation for the feast. The Vojem Procession will begin at 3.30 pm from Alangar Katte proceeding to the Church followed by Mass and Novena
