E-mail Print PDF

BELLARY, APRIL 19: A large number of Christians of all denominations held a prayerful ecumenical procession on the occasion of Holy Week on Sunday, Apr. 17 in Bellary.

Christians of all denominations such as Catholics, Church of South India, Assembly of God, Bethany Impact Church, Chaitnaya Pastors’ Association and others joined the prayerful procession.

They converged in large numbers at the St. Anthony’s Cathedral and after a prayer session lead by the CSI Pastor Samuel Prasad marched peacefully through the main road to St. John’s School grounds.

On the way they were joined by the local parishes and the Faithful from other christian denominations.

At the venue in the Fort area, the gathering was led by Bishop of Bellary Henry D’Souza.

Bishop D’Souza urged all Christians “to heed the call of Christ to be united and to witness to the same faith and mission of Christ”.

“In this crucial time, where Christian minority community is facing lots of challenges such as widespread communalism and corruption, Christians should shine like a bright beacon through their life of loving service”, Bishop added.

“Christians need to be role models of upright life and probity in both private and public life”, affirmed Bishop D’Souza.

The prayer meeting was made meaningful by the choirs of St. Anthony’s Cathedral, CSI Churches and New Life Fellowship churches.

After the Bishop’s message, Pastors led the gathering in to prayer. They were: Fr. Anthony Raj, JP Kasturi, Sampath Kumar, Thomas and Richard.

Fr. Chowrappa facilitated the programme and Sudhakar proposed the vote of thanks.
