In his homily, the bishop gave a call to witness Christ by deeds if needed by words. The main message was to be ‘baptised and sent’. He reminded about the important holy men and women who were martyred while professing their faith for Christ.

The bishop also said that the Holy Spirit will remain in order for a person to live a Christian life and to be a true follower of Jesus. This sacrament will guide the person about what to speak, how to behave and how to show true spirit of Catholic life. One need not fear others. It will boost ones confidence. It will help in judging good and bad.

After the homily the bishop confirmed the children. Isac Furtado, secretary of the parish council and Nathalia Furtado stood as sponsors for the children.

At the end of the mass, the bishop was honoured with a flower offered by the assistant parish priest. Parishioners gathered in huge numbers for the celebration.
