    Default Wish you all happy St. Mary's Feast

    St. Mary's Feast which celebrates the birth of Mother Mary is the most important festival celebrated in the Basilica Church in Shivaji Nagar, Bangalore.

    This festival is attended by thousands of people.Generally it is held in the month of September, the festivities for this usually go for 10 days. And on 8th Septembera grand chariot procession goes around the city.

    The festivities begin with the hoisting of a traditional flag. A Novena is held on the first nine days from August 30 to September 7. On September 8, the day on which Mother Mary was born, is celebrated as a feast. Holy mass is offered in different languages and mass marriages are conducted for the poor and needy. Also a thanksgiving mass is organised for couples who have completed 50 years of marriage.

    People wear saffron color dress and come to church for offering prayers and in these days usually people feed the poor. Many they either sponser a meal at an old age home or orphanage.

    This day is full of festivities and I have seen people just spend the day with joy.

    I wish all of you a happy St. Mary Feast.
