Kemmannu, March 08: A special evening mass, the first of its kind in Kemmannu church history was held at the church cemetery on Friday, March 08. This was a special mass offered to the departed souls of Kemmannu to commemorate their contribution to the church and was part of the Platinum Jubilee celebration of the church.

Fr. Alban D’Souza, parish priest of Kalmady was the main celebrant of the mass with Fr. Wilson Andrade and Fr. Anil joining him in the celebration. The mass began at 6.30 pm and ended by 8 pm. Around 600 parishioners attended this mass and prayed for the souls of their beloved family members. Many had repainted the graves and crosses on the graves. The cemetery was fully flood lit with special lighting arrangements.

Snacks and soft drinks were provided to the people who attended the mass. Everyone, who attended were happy about the mass and the arrangement made by the core committee members of the Platinum Jubilee committee.

If u read the 1st letter of John, it clearly mentioned: "If u see your brother commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray to God.who will give him life. This applies to those whose sins do not lead to death. But there is a sin which leads to death, and i do not say that u should pray to God about that". We know everything but still we are closing our eyes.
