Way of the Cross to Navi Mumbai Deanery
On 7th march 2023, our parishioners experienced a surreal bliss as we visited seven astonishing parishes in Navi Mumbai allowing us to witness a wholesome encounter with Christ. The journey began with relishing some delicious breakfast, kick starting our anticipation for the enlightening travel.
We absorbed the spiritual essence in every parish we visited which included parishes in Airoli, Kopar Khairane, Vashi, Nerul, CBD Belapur, Kharghar and Panvel each. Amidst immersing into the serene atmosphere of nature and the beautiful landscape that each parish had to offer, we indulged in a time of immense prayer and silence. Our parishioners with hearts filled with faith and love, conducted the stations of the cross in English, Konkani and Marathi allowing each of us to surrender ourselves to the Lord with open arms. This divine day was filled with compassion and calmness we longed for amidst our daily schedules. Our hearts and minds were filled with joy and tranquility admiring the stories and aura each parish had to offer. Memories were made, faith was restored and smiles were widened through this spiritual journey.
We extend our deepest gratitude to Fr Lancy Pinto, Fr Ashlyn Chand, Fr Ashwin Castellino and Brother Ambrose for accompanying us on this fruitful experience and renewing our relationship with our Lord. We will forever hold this holy day close to our hearts.
