Monti-Festh Celebration in Manchester

KCA-UK celebrated the 12th successive Monti-Fest on September 09, 2017 at Gandhi hall in Manchester, UK. More than 250 konkani speaking people from different parts of the United Kingdom gathered as one family to celebrate this religious event.

The introduction before the mass was done by Reena Rodrigues and Lainet Pinto from Manchester. The children and adults offered flowers to Mother Mary to commemorate her birthday; whilst the choir simultaneously sang the hymn "Morieak Hogolxieam".

Fr. Charles Menezes from Paris offered the holy mass. The first reading was read by Vinjoy Rego Manchester and the second reading by Thelma Furtado Sunderland. During the homily Fr. Menezes emphasised on parents role in the religious upbringing of their children and the respect for women in today’s society. The choir uplifted the spirits by their melodious singing, led by Stan Mendonca along with Sujith Rodrigues and Mukesh Kannan from Manchester.  

Before the final blessing Jyothi Mendonca Manchester thanked Fr. Menezes, the choir members and all the people gathered. After mass elderly members from the congregation were invited to the dais to participate in mixing the blessed Novem with milk which was later shared amongst all. 

Lysa Barboza Liverpool and Jyothi Mendonca Manchester sponsored soft drinks and cake to all the guests.
