A DEVOTIONAL MONTH INDEED

VIRAR, JUNE 01, 2012: Month of May is known as a month of Summer Vacations but it is the same month when parishioners gather in the Church to pray the Rosary. This month became a very devout month at Jyoti Mata Church Virar (w) because of the well animated Rosary services by the different zones of the parish.


This year each zone was given responsibility of animating the Rosary. All the zones along with the guidance from the Salesians came up with a lot of creativity to help the faithful pray more devoutly. The animations consisted of some video clipping on the mysteries of the Rosary, Marian apparitions, Power points, audio-visual songs and others. It was also a time to pray for the parish and various other intentions. Everyday the parishioners turned out in big numbers to pray the Rosary. 


The feast day celebration was solemn and a memorable one. The members of the youth group animated on this day. The celebration began with a Rosary service followed by the Eucharist celebrated at the grotto. The Eucharist and the homily helped the faithful to reflect on the courageous personality of our Blessed Mother.


This was indeed a month for the parishioners to come together and grow in devotion to our Blessed Mother. Animations were well appreciated by the faithful. One could really see the people praying the Rosary devoutly. This month has indeed helped to come closer to our Blessed Mother and led us to Jesus through Mary.
