Christmas celebrated with joy and devotion at Bajjodi
Dec.24th: Christmas is a time for sharing and friendship. It was
celebrated with devotion and gusto at Infant Mary Church Bajjodi.
The festal Eucharistic celebration was held at 7.30pm and
parishioners gathered at the church for the Holy Mass in Konkani
which was concelebrated by Parish Priest Fr. Shabas Crasta.
Asst. Priest Fr. Ivan D’souza was the main celebrant.
Parish Priest Fr. Shabas Crasta in his homily, exhorted the
faithful to follow in the path of Jesus Christ and said that,
"The present situation in the world is very bad. Hatred has
spread among people. We must do only good deeds, only then can
we live a happy life. What is the point in life if we do not
follow what God wants from us? He loves everyone. It does not
mean we should become selfish. Let us make this world a selfless
one by following Jesus."
After the mass auction, housie and ward wise Santa Show was held
in the parish grounds. All the people exchanged Christmas wishes
with each other. The Christmas joy was shared by distributing
Christmas cake to all the faithful. There were around 800 people
who witnessed the celebration.
May Jesus who was born in the manger come to the lives of all
the faithful in this Holy Christmas season!
