Events : The spirit-filled Lenten Mission
on 2015/3/1 20:30:00 (857 reads)

The Mangalorean Association of Canada had a great beginning in this New Year with graceful and spirit-filled spiritual mission in Konkani during the Lenten season. The main preacher was Rev.Fr.Joel D'Souza ofm.cap. accompanied by Rev.Fr.Henry Alva ofm.cap. The spiritual thirst-quenching retreat talks were preached on every Saturdays during the Holy month of Lent. There was a quite reasonable number of faithful who attended the mission thoroughly enjoyed the spiritual treat on all those days. All talks were based on Holy Bible clubbed with attractive audio-visual presentation by Fr.Joel. The graceful retreat was an in-depth enlightenment towards the Word of God.

The spiritual talk addressed to the Youth on 21st March 2015 by Fr.Joel & Fr.Henry was like an icing on the cake. It was very encouraging to see our own youth leading the prayers and singing in Konkani. Hats off to Sonia Monteiro, a talented personality of our community, for taking a great leadership in training & mentoring the youth.

Everyone who attended this spiritual mission really had a great Soul-elevating experience. The Konkani community in Mississauga and the surrounding areas is thankful to Fr. Joel D'Souza, Fr.Henry Alva, Fr.Edwin D'Souza, the Choir group of Merlyn Rodrigues and the Mangalorean Association of Canada for organizing & rendering such an enriching and spirit-filled mission.

MAC, a non-profit, non-political volunteer organization based in Mississauga, Ontario elected a new Executive Committee during the Annual General Meeting held in November 2016. This working group consists of active, enthusiastic members whose skills and talents encompass a wide spectrum of jobs and activities. It is the responsibility of this new working group to ensure that the association continues to thrive and grow and be actively involved in community service through a myriad of events: Social, Religious, and Humanitarian. It is the objective of the association to make the Konkani community a partner in its growth and development. Guiding the association through its journey, offering unflinching support and spiritual guidance is Rev. Fr. Edwin D'Souza, former pastor of Sts. Martha and Mary Parish, Mississauga. It is due to the dedicated and untiring efforts of Life members, former EC, current EC and our dearly departed members that MAC has triumphed over challenges and accomplished great things.

"Together we make a difference" this motto is engrained in everything MAC stands for and strives for. The association is a remarkable platform for anyone who searches for opportunities, a beacon for those hoping for familiar traditions and reminisce about ancestral homes and a strong driver championing leaders and youth.

We wish the association continued success.
