 This expo helps in spread the message of rosary as well as meaningfully helps to prepare for the year 2018, which has been dedicated as ‘The year of rosary’.

Rosary creates a mood for prayer and brings one closer to the lord, said the Bishop and congratulated parish priest J B Crasta and his team on putting up the expo.

Mangalore South MLA J R Lobo said it feels wonderful to see the Rosary collection. The news of this expo should reach many and more numbers should visit to witness the collection. The expo should be held every year and celebrated like a rosary festival, he said.

The exhibition intends to help the devotees to meditate mysteries of Lord Jesus, strengthen ones faith and help strengthen family bonds. The exhibition is being held by Sabu, a layman.

The expo is open to the public till November 12 between 10 am to 8 pm at Rosario Cathedral Cultural Hall.
