BIS #6442 JyotiMata Church youth honour Mother Mary

by Father Richard Burkhao for BISMumbai

Through a prayerful and devotional rosary service, the youth of Jyoti Mata Church, Jyoti-Arnala honoured the Blessed Virgin Mary, on 08 September 2021, on the occasion of her nativity.

Local Youth Delegate-Father Richard Burkhao, led the group into an animated rosary by first explaining the importance of the Feast of the Nativity and its significance, exhorting the youth to have devotion to the Blessed Mother, who is the first and perfect disciple of Jesus Christ.

After the Rosary, each youngster, kneeling before the statue of Mother Mary with some flowers, prayed in silence for few minutes, for their various intentions, worries and difficulties. They then placed those flowers at the feet of the Blessed Mother, as a symbolic offering of their life and intentions.

Later, Jyoti Mata Church Priest Incharge-Father William Falcao, blessed and inaugurated the new table-tennis board. He also thanked and prayed for the good health and intentions of the Don Bosco School past-pupil, who donated the board.
