Blessing and Inauguration of Grottos in Honor of Infant Jesus and St. Antony of Padua at Mufort Parish

A long cherished dream of the parishioners of St. Anthony’s Church, Mudfort was to build grottos in honour of Infant Jesus and St. Antony of Padua. This dream came into reality by the grace of God.

On January 01, 2015, the grotto of Infant Jesus was blessed by Rev. Fr. Susaikannu Esack, SAC, parish priest, in the presence of Rev. Fr. Joswalt Rodrigues, SAC and other Priests. The Nominated MLA Mr. Elvis Stevenson inaugurated the same. On the same day the year of consecrated life was inaugurated in the parish.

On January 18, 2015, the grotto of St. Antony of Padua was blessed and inaugurated by His Grace Most Rev. Thumma Bala, Archbishop of Hyderabad, in the presence of the parish priest and assistant parish priest and other priests and religious and parishioners. On the same day many children of Mudfort parish received the First Holy Communion and Confirmation in the solemn concelebrated Holy Eucharist presided over by the Archbishop.

We congratulate and appreciate Fr. Susaikannu Esack, parish priest and Fr. Joswalt Rodrigues, assistant parish priest, for their efforts and hard work in building the parish community.
