Our Parish had its Annual Pilgrimage to the Mount on the 14th November. A good number of parishioners assembled at the Grotto at 7.15am from where they vended their way through Malla onto Kantwadi, St.Paul Road and uphill to the Mount. The parish Fathers joined in as well with recitation of the Rosary all the way, accompanied by hymns. Some groups carried banners too. Those unable to trudge along, met the group directly at the Basilica for Mass.
The main celebrant was Fr. Leon with Fr. Clement, Fr. Roque and Fr. Prax as con-celebrants. In his homily, Fr. Leon stressed that we must be able to say YES to the Will of God at all times. The Liturgy was well prepared by Natty and the Choir was impressive, led by Clarissa on the keyboard.
After the Eucharist, the pilgrims were treated to a hearty breakfast where there was plenty of interaction.
May Our Lady of the Mount bless us all.
