Mangaluru, Sep 9: Monthi fest celebration at St Joseph's Seminary, Jeppu was held on September 7.

The birth of heavenly was celebrated with overwhelming joy. The day also marked the inauguration of the silver jubilee year of Konkani bhinghari (Konkani academy).
The day began with a holy eucharistic celebration in Konkani. Fr James D’Souza was the main celebrant of the day. Fr Ronald Serrao, rector, Fr Francis D’Souza, director of Konkan bhinghari, Fr Boniface Pinto, Fr Milton Jacob were present for the eucharistic celebration.

Soon after the liturgical ceremony there was an inaugural ceremony of the silver jubilee year of Konkani bhinghari and the release of 'Nada' (Konkani bhinghari annual magazine).

History takes goes back to 1918-19 when the seminary first opened for the academies in vernacular languages and Konkani Academy (Unitas ’23). But the amalgamation of the academies in the middle of 1930s interrupted the academy’s life. Later, by the drastic efforts of Fr John Femandes, then professor and a few brothers, the revival of Konkani Academy took place in 1995-1996. With new vigour and better motives, it was named 'Konknni Bhingari'.

This year silver year of ‘Konknni Bhingari' was celebrated thanking God for the continuous journey in education, the culture and language and for all the good that has taken place.
