The Mangalorean Association of Canada had a great beginning in this Year 2019 with the graceful and spirit-filled spiritual mission during the Lenten season. The main preacher was Sr.Hazel D’Souza, a renowned preacher from Mumbai, accompanied by Rev.Fr.Roshan D’Souza. Rev.Fr.Edwin D’Souza, the Spiritual Director of MAC was the main celebrant for all the Masses.
Starting from March 9th the spiritual thirst-quenching retreat talks were preached on every Saturdays during the Holy month of Lent. All talks were based on the Holy Bible. The graceful retreat was focussed on in-depth enlightenment towards the Word of God. There was a special spiritual talk addressed to the Youth on 30th March 2019 by Sr.Hazel. This spiritual program was held at Sts.Martha & Mary Church, Mississauga. Konkani choir with angelic singing led by Ms. Merlyn Rodrigues was soul-elevating. The turnout was reasonably good and it was encouraging to see the number was increasing week after week. Undoubtedly, this spiritual event conducted by MAC has succeeded stirring-up the spirituality of many Mangaloreans and Goans residing in Mississauga & surrounding areas.
