The catechism day of Mai De Deus Church Puttur was held on 24.02.2019 with much fervor and enthusiasm. It was the day to thank the Lord for the gift of faith. It was also the day marked to felicitate the parish Children who have been successful in learning the truth of our faith.The celebration began at 9.30 am with Eucharistic celebration. Rev.Fr. Maxim D’Souza, from St. Joseph Seminary was the main celebrant while, Rev. Fr. Alfred J Pinto, Rev. Fr. Praveen D’Souza and Rev. Fr. Valerian Mascarenhas were the concelebrants. The children took active part in the liturgy and melodies choir added more beauty to the celebration.







As a part of sermon, a question was asked to the student by the preacher, “ What have you learnt after coming to the Sunday Catechism classes?” Being present in the materialistic world, whether you are a religious or lay people, everyone want to receive than to give. In this connection, he advised the parents to train their children to give than only thinking of receiving with apt examples of daily life situations.

The Mass was followed by the Eucharistic adoration, wherein, everyone prayed to all the catechism children & their parents. Since S.S.L.C and P.U.C students are preparing themselves for the school annual exam, they were called near the Blessed Sacrament and offered special prayers.

After the Mass, coordinators read the names of the children who were present for the catechism classes throughout the year, those who stood 1st & 2nd in the catechism exam, the toppers in the Diocesan level the catechism exam given prizes. As a token of gratitude, a small gift was offered to the catechism teachers.
