By Thamburaj Vincent
Tiruchy, Feb. 28. The parishioners of Melanmarainadu celebrated the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. The Mass was celebrated and concelebrated by Fr. K.P. Vincent SDB, the assistant parish priest of Vilathikulam and Fr. Dennis SDB and Fr. Jayaseelan SDB respectively.
The faithful of Melanmarainadu celebrated the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes from 11th to 13th February. The three day feast commenced on 11th February with the hoisting of the flag followed by the inaugural Eucharistic celebration. The Mass was celebrated and concelebrated by Fr. K.P. Vincent SDB, the assistant parish priest of Vilathikulam and Fr. Dennis SDB and Fr. Jayaseelan SDB respectively. The liturgy was beautifully animated by the teachers and students of the R.C. Primary School, Melanmarainadu.

The second day was the real fest day celebration. Fr. John Kennedy SDB, the assistant parish priest of Keela Iral, led the people into the feast day Eucharist. Fr. Samuel SDB, Fr. Dennis SDB and Fr. Jayaseelan SDB were present for the feast day Mass. The youth of the parish along with St. Anthony's High School children led the feast day Eucharistic liturgy. The day was marked with a double celebration too. Six of the parish children were given the first Holy Communion during the Mass. In honour of the feast we conducted drawing and essay writing competitions for the catechism children. The winners were awarded prizes during the Mass. At the end of the Mass, Our Lady of Lourdes Cart was taken as procession into the streets of Melanmarinadu.

13th February was the last day, a day of thanksgiving for the faithful of Melanmarainadu. Fr. Noelraj SDB, the former parish priest of the place, was the chief guest of the day. He presided over the Eucharist and Fr. Sagayaraj Arulkannu SDB, Fr. Dennis SDB, Fr. Samuel SDB and Fr. Jayaseelan SDB concelebrated with him. The final day liturgy was looked into by the different Anbiums of the parish. At the end of the Eucharist the feast day flag was lowered down by the chief guest.

The three days were the real celebration for the people of Melanmarinadu. People in good number participated in the celebrations. The generosity, unity and the cooperation of the faithful made this event a great success. May Our Lady of Lourdes intercede them and keep them united always!
