Men are often considered not so religious and are not interested in prayers and God. This misunderstanding was dispelled when men’s convention was organized on 6th of January 2014. A first ever men’s convention was held at Mary Help of Christians Parish Borduria with the theme “Know that you are my disciple”. Over 350 men from Borduria and neighbouring villages participated with lots of enthusiasm and vigour. Rev Fr. Joy Mathew, the parish Priest of Lazu led them in prayer. They listened attentively and participated in the prayers devotedly. It was concluded with Holy Mass at 4.00pm which was participated by women, youth and children. They too were happy to see men praying with lots of love and devotion. Many expressed it was a wonderful experience with the Lord. Although in the beginning they were bit stiff and indifference but soon they opened up and participated and prayed with lots of devotion and love. It was wonderful to see them praying loud and sharing prayers. It was reawakening for many and expressed desire to have more of this kind  in future. (Fr. Pradeep, Borduria)
