Many Mangalorean families dressed in their finest attended the much awaited Konkani mass that started at 8.30 pm. The Konkani choir sung beautiful hymns led by Mr. Franky Monis.

Fr. Augustine explained the role of Mother Mary and stressed the importance of praying to her.  After the mass, Noven (blessed corn) was distributed to all the faithful. This was followed by a small social function in the parish hall.
