Manifold Blessings to the Multitudes! at Infant Jesus Shrine, Bikarnakatte, Mangalore
Mangaluru: The Shrine of Infant Jesus, Bikkarnakatte, organised a two-day Lenten retreat on 2nd and 3rd April on the shrine premises.

Many received physical healings during the Holy Hour of Adoration and gave their testimonies.
All gathered were provided lunch (Annasantarpane) at the shrine campus. The two days of the retreat were indeed days of divine blessings. The Retreat concluded with the Eucharistic Procession, in which the congregation participated devoutly.
