DSC06319 (1)

The newly made Grotto of Our Lady was blessed by Rev. Dr. Raju Mathew Panackal, Superior General of Missionaries of Compassion, at Lazu on 15th September 2014, the Feast of our Lady of Sorrow. Regular prayers are conducted at the Grotto on every Saturday. Many of the Lazu faithful attend the Holy Rosary and Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help and receive the graces of our Blessed Mother. This grotto was made by Fr. Joy and his team without the help of any workers.

It has been such a difficult situation that for the past 3 months as the one only road to Lazu was blocked because of landslides. Braving all the difficulties Fr. Joy and his team completed the Grotto successfully.

On this important day, new Congregation of Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows Servites of Mary of Pisa(OLS) who joined the Mission from this July celebrated the Feast of their Congregation. Fr. Joy Mathew the Parish Priest at Lazu presided over the celebrations and there were cultural programs by the parish Faithful and School Children. May Mother Mary bless the Sisters and their ministry at this new centre.
