Nine other priests from neighbouring parishes join in the concelebration. The servers at the Eucharist are our Catholic Children and the Choir too consists of our own students.
The choir was accompanied by Mr Geoffrey Aranha, the choir master of St Stephen’s School, Chandigarh. The Archbishop, in his homily, paid tribute to the JM Sisters for their work of Education. He recalled that “LOVE” was the key to the relationship between Teacher and Taught. And this can only come about with the Love of God in our hearts.
