Aug. 31: All roads led to the Shrine of Our lady of Health, Harihar on 30 August, 2018.

The Annual Feast of Harihar Matha began with the hoisting of the flag by Very Rev. Fr Stany D’ Souza, the chancellor of the Diocese of Shimoga and Mrs Laxmi S, Town Muncipal Commisioner,  Harihar.

Flagging off the nine-day celebrations, Fr Stany urged the faithful to imbibe the values of Mother Mary, who wipes the tears of the distressed. Thousands of devotees from all walks of life, some clad in saffron, witnessed the event. The sudden inflow of pilgrims threw the traffic out of gear in the city. Many priests of the diocese concelebrated the high mass with Fr Stany D’ Souza. Fr Arogyaraj SDB inspired the devotees with his powerful and thought-provoking sermon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A surprising visit was paid by Mr Ramappa, the MLA. He participated devoutly in the Holy Eucharist without disturbing the liturgy. He was felicitated by Frs Anthony Peter, the Rector of the Shrine and Fr Stany D’ Souza.

After the Eucharist, priests blessed the devotees by laying their hands on their heads. After the celebrations, the devotees took part in the “Anna Santharapane (Food).”

As we prepare ourselves spiritually for the feast of Harihar Matha, we shall pray for the success of the feast and the safety of all the pilgrims who come to Harihar.
