The Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady was celebrated at Corpus Christi Church Moodbidri in the morning at 7.30 a.m. mass celebrated by Parish priest V. Rev. Fr. Austin Peres.  As it was an obligation day, the church was full of devotees for the celebration of the feast and Independence Day.

Fr. Austin preached on the great truth of mother Mary taken to heaven by God with body and soul as she was without sin at birth and also sinless in life.  Our Lord Jesus was conceived by the Holy spirit in Mary and she was handmaid of God by her humble and obedient nature.  So she is made the Queen of heaven.  Many saints have explained the truth of Mary taken to heaven with body and soul.  By our faith we believe this truth.  Mother Mary is  our mother too and she wants us to come to heaven to praise God for His love for us humans.

After the mass Indian national flag was hoisted by V. Rev. Fr. Austin Peres and national anthem was sung by all, saluting the flag.  In his address , he explained the meaning of the three colours of the flag and our service to the nation.  "Let us ask what we are doing to our nation and not what the nation is doing for us."

Sweets were distributed to all present to mark the occasion. ICYM organized the mass liturgy and the flag hoisting ceremony.

"Wish you all a very Happy Feast and Happy Independence Day"
