Sept. 24, 2017
A pilgrimage to the Mount was organized by the A.B.E ( Archdiocesan Board of Education) on the 14th of September 2017. Schools from all across Mumbai were invited for this event. Many schools took part in this spiritual experience.
All the participant schools assembled on the grounds of Apostolic Carmel High School, Bandra (W) at 9 a.m. Thereafter, the walking pilgrimage to the Mount began at 9:30 a.m. While walking, the rosary was recited and hymns were sung to Our Lady. A total of 1500 students, sisters, teachers and parents took part wholeheartedly in the pilgrimage.
Proper security arrangements had been made and the traffic was monitored smoothly to ensure that there was no hindrance to the pilgrims.
The mass at the Mount began at 10:30 a.m. The main celebrant was Bishop Agnelo Gracious accompanied by few other priests. Seating arrangements for the pilgrims had been taken care of by the A.B.E. The mass ended on a positive note.
The A.B.E provided all the participating schools with snack boxes before they left in their respective buses that were parked at Bandstand.
The main purpose of this pilgrimage was to gather together as a united whole to pray to Our Blessed Mother and thank her for all the graces and favours received through her intercession all through the year.
The overall experience was an enriching one.
