The oath taking ceremony was arranged during the morning 8.00 AM mass. Rev. Fr. Maxim Pinto – SVD , Rev. Fr. Ronald Coutinho, Director – Diocesan Women’s Association and the Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Norbert Lobo came in a procession to the main altar along with St. Peter and Paul ward parishioners who celebrated their feast on the same day.
Fr. Maxim Pinto, the main celebrant of the mass narrated the oath to 4 members who promised to walk in the path laid down by St. Francis of Assisi.
Fr. Ronald Coutinho delivered a very good homily in which he highlighted qualities of a true leader and mentioned that there can be no better leader than our Lord and Good Shepherd Jesus Christ.
The liturgy conducted by St. Peter and Paul ward parishioners under the guidance of their Gurkars Mrs. Veronica Saldanha (St. Paul Ward) and Mr. Victor D’Souza (St. Peter ward) was truly meaningful.
After the mass, Fr. Ronald Coutinho conducted Women’s Association meeting in the church hall.
