Sunday 29 October 2017: Catholic Sabha Moodbidri Ghatak organized “Senior Citizens Day” at the Corpus Christi Church Hall today from 9.30 a.m. until lunch in the afternoon. About 76 senior citizens were present.
Rev. Frs. Antony Fernandes and Francis Dsouza heard the confessions of the elders from 9.30 a.m. to 10.00 a.m. Breakfast was served to all until 10.30 a.m. The Mass started at 10.30 a.m. Rev. Fr. Francis D’souza - Director of the St. Antony’s Ashram Mangalore celebrated the Holy Eucharistic Sacrifice. He preached and explained the seniors how to face their elderly life with patience and prayers, live happily with the family and share their feeling and experiences with their co-ordinates. This will ease their tension and stress and keep them going. God will always be with them when they keep praying.
