On 24th January, while our MSFS congregation celebrated its Heavenly Patron’s Feast, the parish of Othaiyal celebrated its Annual Feast. The solemn Feast Mass started at 6.30 p.m., presided over by Rev. Msgr. Jaya Raj, VG of Madurai Archdiocese. Many of our neighbouring confreres from Pandiyan Nagar and Nalattinputhur were also present. After the Holy Eucharist, ‘Infant Jesus’ Hymn Book was released by the VG, after which there was prize distribution for the parish competitions. There was a procession with 8 chariots. It was conducted according to the village tradition by offering New Shoots (Mullai Paari) to God. There was a great crowd from our substations. It was a good celebration. All were happy and everything went on well.
