Mangaluru, Feb. 7, 2017: Fr Franklin D’Souza, Director and Parish Priest of Our Lady of Health Shrine Church, Harihara, Diocese of Shimoga was the main celebrant of the day. During the homily he called on the couples to build the families by being collaborators with God. He said going against the will of God ruins the families. But that is not the end of it. The merciful God is ever ready to forgive us if we repent for our short comings and He will bless us abundantly. After the homily he made a special prayer for the couples and families. Large number of devotees filled the Church to the full. Earlier during the day he preached half a day retreat at St Anthony’s Ashram Jeppu which was also well attended.
