Merry and Happy Christmas - Midnight Mass at our Capuchin Parish, Umralla

 5000 people in an open ground for the Mass....30 minutes before the midnight Mass Carol singing....all of them singing in their sweet voices was really a Christmas at Bethlehem....singing all old Carols and songs reminded me of my childhood.....santa going round and wishing everyone....women dressed so well....with a lot of jewelry and gold .....looked beautiful...
 We were 6 friars together for the Mass......I was main celebrant and Br. Anil Gonsalves preached a beautiful homily. He is studying in America.....
 Sisters from the Parish decorated a make shift altar......the entire compound of the Church was well decorated....
 After the Mass a big rush to kiss the Baby Jesus....
 A kiss of Peace for Christmas....
 Church was empty as the Midnight Mass was in the Open air....
 A beautiful crib by the youth of the parish....
 A small party after the Mass....brothers and sisters all together.....

The sisters after hard work for almost three days...needed this party...
 The Crib......

 Br. Rajesh D'Souza, the parish priest......he is man of Communication...the LCD players and screens were put up for the benefit of those who were far away from the Altar



 Friars Anil, Malcolm, Me, Rajesh and Saujayana
