As a part of the Year of Building the Family, Couples day was celebrated on 30th March 2014 in St. Joseph’s Church, Sagar. 150 couples participated in the event. The day began with a meaningful Holy Eucharist for the couples. The main celebrant for Mass was Fr. Chetan Lobo, Director of Family Commission, Udupi Diocese. During the Eucharist all the couples renewed their marriage vows. Soon after the mass there was Marriage Enrichment Programme for the couples in St. Joseph’s Samudaya Bhavan. It was organized by Vincent de Paul Society members. The resource persons for the programme were Fr. Chetan and Mr. Leslie Aroza. The programme was inaugurated by Fr.Venus, Fr.Chetan, Fr.Santhosh, Mr. Leslie Aroza, and three senior-most couples from our parish.




Speaking on the occasion, Fr. Venus mentioned that it was the First time that Couples Day was being organized in Sagar Parish and that couples need to nurture their marital life from time to time. The three elderly couples were felicitated on the occasion. They were Mr. Layance D’ Almeida and Mrs. Florine D’ Almeida, Mr. Harold Rodrigues and Mrs. Josephine Rodrigues, Mr. G. A. Gonsalves and Mary Gonsalves.  Later Fr.Chetan and Mr. Leslie Aroza gave a meaningful talk on married life. It really inspired many. Soon after the talk all had a delicious Veg lunch.  The Programme ended with some attractive games and distribution of prizes.
