The celebration of the 150th year of the establishment of the Apostolic Carmel of India, Mangaluru was held in the Mother of Divine Grace Cathedral on Sunday, 9 February 2020. Bishop of Gulbarga inaugurated it by unveiling the picture of Mother Veronica, the foundress of the Apostolic Carmel, and celebrated the Holy Eucharist with other con-celebrants. The sisters from Carmel Niketan and Maria Nilaya, Bidar made the Eucharistic Celebration meaningful by an inspiring introduction, meaningful offertory procession and by singing appropriate hymns.
Bishop preached a touching homily. He connected Sunday Readings to the life and mission of Mother Veronica telling people how she became the ‘Light’ and the ‘salt’ in her days.
