SAVEDI-AHMEDNAGAR, MARCH 21, 2014: A Prayer meeting was organized by Fr. Manuel Murzello, Parish priest of St. John Bosco Church, Savedi for all from 5.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. on March 19-20, 2014 in the Don Bosco Vidyalaya school hall and on March 21, in the village of Jeur. Fr. Allwyn Misquitta with his team led the praise and worship leading the people in prayer.
Fr. Misquitta began with praying the Rosary wherein each Hail Mary was prayed for a different intention. He then celebrated the Eucharist with the people. He spoke to them powerfully about the various issues and called them for conversion, for transformation in their lives. He gave a lot of examples and shared his experiences. He enriched the people with food for the soul. Indeed he touched the hearts of the people and brought them closer to God. He concluded with an hour of adoration wherein he prayed for healing in their lives. He blessed the people in the end taking the Blessed Sacrament close to them. Many people sought his blessing.
Right from the first day there was a good response from the people. Fr. Misquitta spent 3 hours in the morning, listening to the confessions of the people and addressing the many issues in their lives. On the second day there was a bigger crowd who participated devoutly.
In the village of Jeur all preparations of the place, the lights, the sound etc. were done by the villagers. Tempos were arranged to get people from the different villages in Ahmednagar. A lot of people came and fervently participated in the prayer meeting.
The community of Savedi was blessed to have Fr. Allwyn among them. Indeed it was a moment of grace for the parish of St. John Bosco, Savedi.
