Over 600 devotees gathered for flag hoisting and mass at St. Antonys Church, Kavalbysandra. Archbishop Rev Peter Machado in his homily spoke about how Zacheus climbed a tree to see Jesus but instead Jesus saw him. "When we have a real yearning to have an encounter with Jesus, he will identify us. St. Antony had a deep and constant yearning for Jesus and that is why his love and bonding with Jesus was so strong" the prelate said. At a short felicitation after mass, Parish Priest Fr Divya Paul presented the Archbishop with a light blue and white Mitre.
