Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Tivim, Goa

Today (26/10/11),  we had gone for the feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Tivim.
Tivim Church is famous for its Novenas every Wednesday.
Infact, a song in the ongoing tiatr Festival  made me to visit this place.It was about the ‘Perpet Succor’ Novenas at Tivim
The song clip is added to the feast video clip in the end. Sung by Francis Silveira

I may have passed by this village or road but never been to Tivim before. Its about 7 kms from Mapusa.

The Church is just after the Tivim gorund, on the main road
It has beautiful view with a river or stream in front.

The church ( Established 1623) is  dedicated to St. Christopher

Tivim has about  5000 Catholic population.

6 priets concelebrated Feast Mass with Fr. Diago as Main celebrant.
After the feast mass, cake was distributed to all

The feast attended by both  Hindus and Christians, including the feast procession

Tonight, there is a Tiatr ‘PUBLIC’ by Com. Agostinho at the Church square.

Happy Feast to you all.

Hi Joe,

I am looking for the old Novena Prayers of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour. Can you possibly get hold of them for me?

Kind regards
