A memorable day for the OCDS, Mira Road.

On 14th December 2018, the Solemnity of St John of the Cross was indeed a day to remember as 5 members took the Definitive Promises, 22 members took Temporary Promises and 11 menbers entered the Novitiate.

It all started at 7 pm with a Solemn Eucharistic Celebration by Provincial Delegate, Fr Rovel D’Souza, being the main celebrant alongwith Parish Priest Fr Melvin D’Cunha, Fr Lancy D’Souza and Fr Lawrence D’Cunha, Spiritual Assistants of English and Konkani OCDS and with guest priest Fr Peter as co-celebrants.

After the homily the candidates took their promise of Chastity, Poverty, Obedience and to live the life of the Beatitudes in the presence of the Celebrants and the Congregation. The candidates were then vested with the Scapulars. The ceremony was meaningful and touching.

The mass ended with the Choir and parishioners singing a felicitation song and the Salve Regina for the OCDS members. The event was captured on camera with photographs taken to remember this great day.

We thank Almighty God for the graces He has bestowed on us during the formation period and also our Spiritual Assistants for helping us to grow spiritually, guiding, supporting us with prayers for all that we are today.

The day ended by the Carmelite Fathers arranging a fellowship dinner. We thank all our Parish Carmelite Fathers for coming together as one family and for making this day a memorable one for all of us.
