“The more you honor me, the more will I bless you” says Infant Jesus. In honor of him the feast was celebrated on the 10th of January, 2016 here at Alangar. Most Rev Dr Henry D’Souza, Bishop of the Diocese of Bellary, presided over the Solemn Eucharistic Celebration in the evening, along with priests from the deanery as well as other priests from the diocese and religious congregation.
The speciality of this year’s feast in relation to the ‘Year of Mercy’ was the Vehicle rally from Corpus Christi Church, an hour before the mass. The relic of St Pope John Paul II, the propagator of the devotion to the Divine Mercy was brought in procession and instituted in Holy Rosary Church, Alangar. At the end of the Eucharistic celebration the people received the Benediction of the relic.
Donors and well wishers, political leaders, religious leaders where felicitated by the Bishop after the Eucharist. Frs Basil Vas and Kenneth Crasta thanked everyone for their help and support.
