New Beginning to 2019 @ Pushpashrama
If an act has to be executed, a thanksgiving will surely top the whole deed. Every man is entitled to give thanks to his creator and the final day of the year serves as the best opportunity to do the same.

With the hail of Ave Theotokos in the air, the community of Pushpashrama gathered in the shrine at 10: 30 PM with the faithful to adore the Lord, give thanks for His gracious aid in the year 2018 and to beseech his help in the coming year. Followed by the adoration was the solemn mass at 11:00 PM which was celebrated by Fr. Ashwin D’Silva from Dhyana Sadhana, Mysuru. The dual celebration of the dogma of ‘Mary, the Mother of God’ and the New Year attracted a great throng of people who keeping aside the allurements of parties and revelries gathered in the shrine to participate in the Holy Eucharist. Fr. Ashwin’s meaningful and rich homily driven by down-to-earth language moved the gathering to introspect their lives. Also added to this, was the enhancement of the richness of the liturgy by the brothers who with their creative energy conducted an effective penitential rite. Fr. Oswald thanked Fr. Ashwin along with the gathering and invited them to the feast of the Infant Jesus on 6th of January. The holy mass which concluded at 12: 00 AM served as the right moment to wish, greet, rejoice and welcome the New Year with great expectations and hopes.

After greeting the people, the fathers and brothers gathered in the refectory to exchange the New Year’s greetings. To join our company were the special guests from Italy i.e. the parishioners of Empoli and Cenaia, Italy who are also our Rector’s dear friends.

On 1st of January 2019, a thanksgiving mass was celebrated at 8:00 AM by Fr. Pradeep Pinto. Cakes were distributed to the people after both the masses.
