Palm Sunday 25th March 2018, which is the beginning of Holy Week, was observed by all Christians all over the world & in a very special way by the parishioners of the Church of Our Lady of Rosary, Dockyard Road. This day also marks the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. The. Stations of the Cross was organized by Zones 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 of the parish. The Stations of the Cross covered various areas of the above mentioned zones. The Introduction and First Station commenced at All Saints Home where the parishioners had gathered in large numbers. The procession wound its way to various parts of the other zones with the participants singing hymns and reciting the Rosary. The Fourteenth Station culminated at The Holy Cross Oratory in Matharpacady Village. Rev. Fr. Jegaraj, Provincial of the Blessed Sacrament Fathers gave the solemn blessing after the Stations of the Cross. This large gathering showed Christian Unity in the Family & Parish. At the various Stations, the zonal representatives had kept drinking water to quench the thirst of the participants due to the excessive heat. After the final blessing, the participants were handed out homemade chutney sandwiches, wafers and a pack of Frooti.
A Big Thank You to All The Organisers & everyone who took part, thus making this event a memorable one.
