St Anthony Ashram Jeppu conducts live Way of Cross
Mangaluru: St Anthony Ashram Jeppu conducted the devotion of the Way of Cross at the Ashram grounds on 14th March. Very Rev. Dr Ronald Serrao the Rector of St Joseph ±ïeminary Jeppu preached a homily on the Way of the Cross that each person has to live. Jesus said, ’if you wish to follow me take up your cross and follow me’. Accordingly we come across difficulties, failures, sickness, fear, threat etc. in our lives. All these form part of our life and they cleanse our lives. They make us strong in our faith. When we hold the crucifix in our hands the entire Bible comes in front of our eyes. He called on the congregation to draw inspiration from the Cross.
Mr Vincent Fernandes of Mogachi Lahran and his team acted out the fourteen Stations of the Cross. Mr Prem Lobo and his group presented the reflection on the fourteen stations and sang the apt hyms. Mr Alwyn D’Souza and his team prepared the congregation to participate in the devotion by singing Lenten hymns.
Over a thousand people participated in the devotion. Fr Onil D’Souza the director of the Ashram thanked all those contributed to the success of event. Fr Alban Rodrigues and Fr Roshan D’Souza were present on the occasion.
