July 31 : World Day of Grandparents and Elders was celebrated in St. Francis Xavier Church, Bejai on 25 July 2021, at 9:30am Mass. The celebration was marked with the presence of the elders of the parish in good numbers. The Eucharistic celebration was presided over by Fr Robert D’Souza and concelebrated by Rev Fr Dr J. B. Saldanha Parish Priest, Rev Fr Suraj Lobo Assistant Parish Priest, Rev Fr Dr Vincent Sequeira and Deacon Anush D’Cunha. In his homily Fr Robert emphasized on the contribution of the grandparents and the elders in the families. He said, “You grandparents and elders deserve the bountiful blessings for all that you have done in your young active life.” He added, “And now you are a blessing to the Church and icons of faith in your families”.

The liturgy of the day was well organized by the Senior Citizens’ Association of the parish. The parish youth left no stone unturned to make the celebration a memorable event. They distributed a rose and a gift each to the grandparents and elders present.

Parish thanks to all those who generously contributed towards the success of the celebration.
