The Tamil Apostolate of St. Joseph’s Church celebrated Ponggal, the Tamil Harvest Festival with a Thanksgiving Mass at 7.00 am on Sunday, 14th January 2018, followed by lunch at 11.00 am. Before the mass started the “Ponggal Milk’ was blessed and cooked in front of the church. The mass was celebrated by Rev. Fr. Sebastian from India and assisted by our parish priest. The Offertory Gifts consisted of the Ponggal Milk and various agricultural produce. Lunch was served in Dewan Monsignor Anthony Thomas for about 500 parishioners including the Catechism students. The special Ponggal rice was prepared by Josephine Mary and her team. A Big Thank You to all the volunteers who helped to organise this event.
