Jingle Bells…Santa Claus… Christmas 2009 – a Red letter day at Don Bosco Church, Lingarajapuram. As three kings came to adore the Child Jesus, the church was blessed by the visit of three important persons of the Sacred Heart Province of Bangalore. Rev. Fr. Thomas Anuchkandam the Provincial, celebrated the Christmas Mass in English at 8.30 p.m. In his homily, Fr. Provincial stressed HIS Peace, Love and Joy. Rev. Fr. K.O. Thomas (the Vice-Provincial) celebrated the Christmas Mass in Kannada at 9.45 p.m. He was assisted by Fr. Raja (INH) and Fr. Vincent. The Mass in Tamil at 11.15 p.m. was presided over by Rev. Fr. George Mathew – the Economer, and concelebrated by Fr. Devasia (Parish Priest) and Fr. Nicholas (the Assistant). The youngsters of the parish made a simple but beautiful crib where one gets a feel of Bethlehem. All the choir members of the parish sang in their angelic voice for the Christmas Masses.
