The feast of the Nativity of Blessed Virgin Mary was celebrated joyfully at Auxilium Convent Barasat. In preparation for the feast everyone joined in praying the chain Rosaries. Everyday nine Rosaries were prayed and before the good night all came to the chapel to offer nine flowers to Our Lady as a symbolic gesture. On 8 September during the Holy Eucharistic celebration Sr. Mary George U. offered 60 flowers to Our Lady, symbolizing the 60 years of fidelity to the Lord as she begins her one year of preparation. Rev. Fr. Mourlin S.J., the celebrant invited Sr. Mary George to transmit the light which she has received from the Lord to the three representatives of the communities, a sister, a boarder and an aspirant with whom she shares her life and mission. At the end of the Mass all greeted her for the feast day and celebrated the event with sweets.
