BIS #6184 Resurrection Parish Virar [E] online rosary uplifts many

by Hazel Pereira & Father Anton D'Souza for BISMumbai

In the month of October, all the parishioners of Resurrection Parish Virar [E], join for the rosary at the grotto of Mother Mary. But due to the unfortunate COVID-19 situation, this is not possible. Parish Priest Father Anton D'Souza and members of the parish choir planned an online rosary through Zoom. This rosary was conducted on 07 October 2020, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.

The statue of Mother Mary was decorated very beautifully. The intention for the rosary was specially for deliverance from the coronavirus, for the patients, doctors, care-givers, unemployed, impacted families, good health of all the parishioners and for the COVID-19 deceased. Many participants had a significant experience during the rosary; it felt like Mother Mary was present in each and every home during the recitation of the rosary. The response to this online rosary was very good with many of the parishioners participating along with their family. This proved to be a very fruitful venture for the parishioners and was a wonderful experience for all the participants.
