Assumption of BVM & Independence Day @ Pushpashrama
As the tricolors unfurled in the land of India, Pushpashrama too joined hands in spreading the solidarity and unity, proudly saying we are Indians. And this celebration was doubled when the solemnity of the assumption of our Lady added meaning to the Eucharistic celebration held in our shrine at 7: 00am. ‘With Mary to heaven’, this being the slogan, the mass was celebrated and preached meaningfully by Fr. John Lobo. He emphasized that the true meaning of Christian freedom is understood when we emulate the life of Mary.

After the Eucharistic celebration, the faithful saluted the national flag which was hoisted by Fr. Vinod Lobo. A meaningful and thought provoking message was delivered by Br. Loy Crasta and thus reinforced in us with great zeal, the faithfulness to our country. Brothers also sang a song in honor of our country India and to top it all followed a short programme by our tiny tots of the Carmel Play home. It was indeed a delight to see these kids in costumes of Freedom fighters like Onake Obbavva, Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh and others displaying great patriotism at this young age.

Thus the day filled with double celebration to us Christians in India was indeed a memorable one!
