NERUR-PINGULI-KUDAL, NOVEMBER 8, 2014: On 6 November 2014, the Quasi-Parish of Nerur celebrated the feast of Christ the King with great enthusiam and devotion. The main celebrant for the solemn Eucharist was Rev. Bishop Alwyn Barreto. The concelebrants were Frs Maxim D'souza, Mathias D'cunha, Avil Fernandes, Francis Silveira, Royston D'souza and Brian Moras, the in-charge of this quasi-parish .
The feast day was made even more special with the presence of the First Holy Communion children, all eager to receive Jesus in their hearts for the first time. After the solemn Holy Mass, the parishioners gathered round the children to congratulate them, as they cut the cake. Youth of the parish kept the parishioners busy and entertained with their game stalls ensuring them with attractive prizes.
The parishioners then partook of the festive meal exchanging smiles and greetings. The day was truly a blessed one for all the parishioners of the Quasi Parish of Nerur in Sindhudurg, who had worked hard these days to prepare for this great day, physically and spiritually.
