Religious fervour marks Margao church feast

MARGAO: Pomp and religious fervour marked the feast of Immaculate Conception of Mother Mary at the Holy Spirit Church, Margao on Saturday.

Fr Aleixo Menezes, Professor of Rachol Seminary was the main celebrant for the feast mass.

In his homily, Fr. Menezes said Mother Mary lived her life in faith and trust in God and has set an example how to live a faith-filled Christian life. “Mother Mary had trust and faith in God and knew it was God’s plan for her and understood that she had to do his will”, Fr Menezes said.

The Old market area wore a festive look, while the hundreds of stalls permitted in the fair gave a harrowing time for the men in uniform to control the traffic. [H]
