October 13th, 2016, the Centenary of the Apparition of Mother Mary to the 3 children at Fatima, was a Special Day in our Parish. The four Parish Councilors Pramila, Merlin, Melroy and May of our Zone 3, organized a Rosary in honour of Mama Mary,in the Nihar hall. In spite of it being a working day, the occasion was well attended by more than one hundred and twenty of the ardent devotees of Our Lady.
Being such an auspicious day the Rosary was organized, planned and celebrated in a very extraordinary manner. May led the faithful in reciting an intercessory Rosary that had been put up on the screen for the convenience of all. We interceded for the Church, the people at work, people of all ages, for the neglected, for the country and the world at large.
Merlyn with her melodious voice led the singing of apt hymns after each decade in which the congregation joined with gusto. The Rosary ended with a clip on the Apparition.
The highlight of the Rosary was the meaningful miming of each of the Luminous Mysteries, by the various Sectors at the beginning of each decade, which brought out the acting talents of our Parish Councilors, Animators and youth, all dressed in the colorful costumes at the time of Jesus, so that the Word of God in each mystery really came alive in everybody’s heart.
The very prayerful evening of song and prayer, culminated in a joyful and generous fellowship catered for, by each of the four sectors.
