Mokama Parish inaugurated the Year of Faith with 17 children receiving first Holy Communion during the Sunday liturgy on October 15. During the three months of sacramental preparation these children and their families were led into the mysteries of our faith through input sessions, personal contacts, family visits and prayer. The children and the parents actively participated in the liturgy giving witness to their faith. The celebrants of the liturgy, Fathers Nelsen D’Silva and Dominic,K.P. made it very prayerful and devotional through their inspiring homily and prayers. Many parishioners were present for the Mass to encourage the children. Indeed the seed of faith is alive and active in the parish!

“Door of faith is always open for us”, says our Holy Father Benedict XV1. He has invited each of us during this year of faith to build up our faith by studying, learning and meditating on the mysteries of faith that we believe and to bear witness by sharing it with our brothers and sisters around us. It was a joyful privilege for me to share my faith with these children and their families.
