BIS #2039 VAILANKANNI MATA KI JAI
NASHIK, SEPTEMBER 13, 2010: The Feast of the Nativity of Our Lady was celebrated in Nashik under the title of Vailankanni Mata. Both at Don Bosco Church, Nashik and St. Dominic Savio Church, Satpur the Novena and the Feast were celebrated with much attendance, devotion and fervour.
What took place in the evening at Don Bosco Parish, Nashik was something similar, i.e., Holy Eucharist, procession, singing of the ‘Happy Birthday’ to Our Lady, the lowering of the Flag and moments shared together. The only difference was that at Don Bosco the Marian procession was a candle-light procession which seemed similar to the ones they have at Lourdes and the moments together were shared over a non-veg Fellowship Meal. The novena and the Feast were held for the first time at Don .Bosco Parish, Nashik Several were surprised at the great response given by the faithful. Thanks to the main Celebrant of the Holy Eucahrist, Rev. Fr. Suresh Sathe, and the Director of the Nashik Social Service Society.
