altBELLARY: The 13th Bellary Arogya Mathe Mahothsava was held from Aug. 30 to Sep. 8 at the shrine of Blessed Virgin Mary, Bellary.

The festival was climaxed with a solemn Eucharistic Concelebration presided over by the Bishop of Bellary Henry D’Souza.

In his homily Bishop D’Souza urged all, both men and women to respect girl child and to uphold their dignity.

“All of us need to protect girl child, both unborn and born, eliminate child marriage, end violence against women and make our homes and institutions safe for women”, declared Bishop D’Souza.

The novena devotions attracted large crowds of devotees from all walks of life and religious affiliations.

The active participation and discipline displayed by the devotees was exemplary.

Donors came forward generously to provide “prasada” (fellowship meals) to all the devotees on all the days.

The celebrations concluded with a colourful cultural presentation, at which the local MLA, Sri Sriramulu was a chief guest and Bishop D’Souza as president.

Bishop congratulated Frs. Anthonyraj, Sunil Gehloth and all the collaborators and volunteers for their dedicated work in making the annual event a success.
