Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary
September 8, 2018
Saccidananda


September 8 brings loads of joy to celebrate the birth of our heavenly mother Mary and to thank God for the fruits of our beloved mother earth. The novena was help in our chapel as a preparation to the celebration every evening attended by our friends from the neighborhood. The festal mass was presided over by Fr Deepak Fernandes who explained the importance of Mother Mary in our life, the significance of mother earth and family in his homily in Konkani.

The faithful were given blessed corn and sugar cane as is the tradition.

The community lunch was tasty and colorful with plenty of vegetarian dishes on the plantain leaf.

On the following Monday, the extended family of Saccidananda joined us for a family dinner. Every family brought a special dish which was shared by all. The sharing of food indeed had lead us to sharing of joy and goodwill for one another.
