RATHADGAON-BHINGAR, FEBRUARY 1, 2014: Sixteen catechumens were baptized at Rathadgaon, Bhinagar on the feast and yatra of St Sebastian, celebrated on 30th January 2014.
After a three day shibir by Jagtap, the Catechist, the enthusiasm and faith of the people was revived as they prepared for the sacrament and gift of baptism. The Rite of Baptism was held during the Eucharist, after the homily.
The newly baptized responded whole heartedly to the ritual of baptism and gave their responses to the questions of the principal celebrant & officiating parish priest, Fr. Nelson Falcao.
