Annual Pilgrimage to Mount Mary’s Basilica

Staff and Stanislites celebrated the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, the feast of the Jesuit Saint, St. Francis Xavier and also invoked blessings on the students of Std. X, who will soon be appearing for their Board Exams. As they stand on the threshold, ready to face life’s challenges, we wish them every success and a beautiful life ahead.

Many years ago, ‘Plague’ had gripped the lives of many in Bandra. Realizing the consequences of this hazardous disease, people including students who were boarders of our School started praying day and night. Processions were held to the Mount at different times and finally they saw a ray of hope. People then took a vow of going on a pilgrimage every year on the 8th of December and thus this tradition still continues at Stanislaus.

The Eucharist was celebrated with the theme ‘Love God and Serve God’ by the main celebrant Fr. Brian D’Souza and concelebrants Frs. Errol and Jude Fernandes.
