Kemmannu, September 08, 2016: Monti feast, the festival of new harvest was celebrated on Thursday in Kemmannu, with traditional gaiety and fervor.

Ferdinand Gonsalves along with Fr. Lawrence D’ Souza, Director of Catholic Education Board of Udupi Diocese blessed the fresh crop of rice corn with a brief introduction.  ’Moriyeek Hogolsiyaa’ hymn was sung as children offered the flowers to Virgin Mary.

The high mass was celebrated by Fr. Lawrence D’ Souza along with parish priest Fr. Ferdinand.  Fr. Lawrence delivered a powerful homily highlighting the importance of worshiping Mother Mary and about the importance of the day and family bonding.

Parish council members distributed the new rice corn to all those gathered at the church. Later sugar cane of distributed to all Gurkars, sponsors, who sponsored the sweets on Noveena day’s and to all the children and parishioners. Sweet Kheer (Vorn) sponsored by Mr. & Mrs. Jayaprakash D’ Souza and Mr. & Mrs. Archibald Menezes was distributed to the gathered.
