Mangalorean Christians celebrate Monti Fest on the 8th of September. In Konkani, Mother Mary means Monthi. Mangaloreans who speak Konkani celebrate the feast in a unique style. It is also used to commemorate the harvest festival, which is a time of thanksgiving for all the fresh crops.
New corn was blessed by assistant parish priest Fr Ivan at Milagres jubilee hall. Children offered the flowers to mother mary as the hymn ‘Moriye Hogolsiyan’ began.
Holy Eucharist mass is celebrated by all the clergy at the jubilee hall. In his homily, Fr Uday stressed the importance of the feast and by giving the example of mother mary he showed our mother is also very important to our family. She protects, guides, and nurtures every one of us.
