Our parish of St. Joseph Church, Sentul launched the October month of the Rosary during the Sunset mass on Saturday, 1st October 2022. After mass, there was a candle light procession of the statue of Our Lady. October 1st is also the Feast of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus (Lisieux), patron saint of missionaries. The Catholic migrant communities from Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Pakistan who have made St. Joseph’s Church their home parish also participated with us.
As the statue of Our Lady was carried around the Church grounds, a decade of the Rosary was recited in English, Tamil and Myanmar. Teams of parishioners took part in carrying the statue.
The mass was celebrated by our Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Frederick Joseph and co-celebrated by Msgr. James Gnanapiragasam, our priest in residence.
After the procession ended, there was a simple fellowship.
