Monti Fest at DSA
In preparation to the Nativity of BVM, nine days of novena was conducted by the brothers of DSA. On the 7th, a grand Marian Vigil service was held at the grotto of Our Lady with the central garden restored by the brothers after many hours of labour.

On the 8th September, the celebration began with the blessing of the New Corn. The assembly marched in procession and honoured the Infant Mary. The Holy Eucharist was solemnised by Fr Andrew Anil Sequeira, who broke the Word and the Bread for the gathering. Towards the end of the Holy Mass, the Rector, Fr Denis Veigas, addressed the faithful enlightening them about the origin of the ‘Monthi Fest’ at our Monte Mariano Capuchin Covent, at Farangipet. He encouraged the faithful to celebrate this feast in their homes with the presence of all family members.

At lunch, the Fraternity of Deena Seva Ashram, gathered together as one family to celebrate the Nativity of our Blessed Mother and the Family feast. The agape started off with the sharing of the blessed New Corn mixed into a sweet roce, followed by an elaborate course of vegetarian dishes.
