Feast of St. Francis Xavier, Old Goa on 3.12.16


The feast mass was at 10.30 but I arrived very late (as usual)
main celebrant was Archbishop of Ranchi Theodoro Mascarenhas along with Archbishop of Goa Filipe Neri and many priests.

At the end of the feast Mass, Bishop Theodoro in his request to Goa Government said 'please give us the freedom to practice our faith..' (watch video). Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar was also present.
Archbishop Theodore is also the Secretary of the Bishops Conference of India..
