Mangaluru. 9, Feb. 2017: Rev Fr Austin Peris, the Parish Priest of Derebail Church offered mass on the fourth day of the novena. He highlighted the service of the various Lay Associations(St Vincent de Paul, Sodality, Third Order, Youth, Women, Catholic Sabha etc.) who are rendering their selfless service for the growth of the church. He said that besides the Apostles, there were disciples, men and women who followed Jesus and offered their service in the ministry of Our Lord Jesus. Likewise today these Lay Associations are there in the Church providing opportunities for us to render our service for the growth of the Church. We appreciate and thank them for their services and lend our support to them.
