Candle –lit Rosary Procession
St.Alphonsa’s life blew out like a candle after radiating sweetness and light all around for a short span of time. The candle-lit rosary procession held on all Saturdays and on the 9 days preceding the Feast of the saint on 28th July starts from the shrine church at around 6.15 P.M. after the ladeenj, the Mass and the novena, circumambulates the St.Mary’s Forane church and ends at the beginning. The devotees participate in the procession with spiritual fervour and interiorize the kenotic life of St. Alphonsa, a perfect paradigm of ideal cenobitic life.
