St Thomas Feast 2011

The feast of St. Thomas our patron was celebrated on 3rd July, 2011. The parish was buzzing with activity right from 30th June when we began the Triduum in preparation for the feast. Guest priests Fr. Paul, Fr. Daniel and Fr. Vijay were invited to celebrate the Eucharist and break the word of God. A good number of parishioners made it for the Triduum.

On Sunday the 3rd of July, the Legionaries welcomed every parishioner who came for the feast mass at 8.30am with roses that were specially prepared by them. The solemn entrance procession led by the cross bearer, altar servers, lectors, eucharistic ministers and celebrants made their way to the altar amidst a packed church and the choir singing ‘Come on and celebrate……’. The Eucharistic celebration focussed on the theme: ‘Jesus dispels all our doubts’.

In his homily, Fr. Blaise D’mello the main celebrant described St.Thomas as the person who had a personal encounter with the risen Jesus. His faith enabled him to acclaim Jesus as “My Lord, and my God”. After receiving the Holy Spirit he travelled to India, bore witness to Jesus as he went about fearlessly, spreading Christianity in Southern India until he was martyred. Fr. Blaise encouraged to be an effective Christian witnessing Christ in all our deeds and actions.

After mass all the parishioners made their way to the school quadrangle to participate in the Fete. 16 communities put up stalls with a variety of snacks and pastries. The Feast Hamper and Guess the weight of the Cake, were added attractions at the Fete. The Fete committee had prepared a special programme: Harry with his Children’s choir group set the crowd in the festive mood with their melodious singing, games for little children added to a little fun and entertainment. Our Parish Fathers mingled with the crowd exchanging festive wishes to one and all. The proceedings at the Fete came to a close at 11.30am. All returned home happily to share the festive joys with their families.

St Thomas Feast 2010

Here are a few comments which our ‘roving reporter’ got from some of the people who attended and enjoyed the Feast Day celebrations:

“Lots of new faces seen around the place. Good effort by everybody involved.” – Ronnie D’Souza, a parishioner.

“I am very happy to see the stalls put up by everyone – everyone is so enthusiastically involved, and calling out to each other and making each one feel comfortable.” – Shamin Mendes, Sunday School Teacher.

“The decorations are very good. I met a lot of my students, and was very pleased to meet them. The idea of the Fancy Dress Competition was a very good one. I enjoyed the fact that Bishop Ferdie sang with such gusto, and I admire his energetic approach.” – Lorna D’Mello, Principal of St Thomas High School.

“The fete is great, and the food is interesting too.” – Jewellyn Alvares, Choir Member.

“It was a well participated Mass, and the resounding voices of the congregation filled the church. The participation was very encouraging. The Fancy Dress Competition was a welcome change, and it was good to watch each child trying to excel.” – Assumption Fernandes, Cantor.

“Good Collection” – Lawrence D’Souza, Finance Committee.

“Very good participation and a lot of positive energy could be felt around. Many people came for Mass, and they also helped in the organisation of the feast celebrations. Each participant of the Fancy Dress performed very well, and it was very difficult to choose.” – Br Godwin Fernandes, Judge – Fancy Dress Competition.

“Everything’s excellent and beautifully done. Congratulations to the Committee who did a wonderful job.” – Albert Pereira, Vice-President, PPC.

“Very nicely arranged. Everyone has taken a lot of trouble, and I appreciate the efforts of all those people. It is good to see that all the people and children are involved. It is a good way of setting an example to the children and moulding them.” – Mr Easidor Mathew, a parishioner.

“Very good participation. The Unit Leaders and animators did a great job.” – Fr Denzil Correia, Parish Clergy Team.

From the above comments, we can see how pleasant and joyful the experience of the Feast Day was to each and everyone present. Those who were not able to make it to the grounds that day were greatly missed.
