On 11th April 2005 with the initiation of Fr. Rudolf D’Souza the then Parish Priest of our Parish St. Joseph Church, Mira Road, Hindi Prayer service started in our Parish. This Prayer group was named as Karuna Ministry and was led under the leadership of Rajan Fernandez. In the beginning only 20 to 30 people attended this prayer group but as the days passed, by the grace and blessing of God today almost 800 to 900 people attend this pray service every Monday’s in the Church after 7 pm Mass. It is not only the Catholics who attend this service, but you will find at least 30% Non-Christians brethren who attend this prayer service and experience the power of Jesus Christ in their lives. Many embrace Christian faith and become Christa Bhakt. End of the Prayer service we minister people those who are suffering from evil influences and sicknesses.

We have almost 30 to 35 lay persons as members of Karuna Ministry, who are committed in this prayer group in different ministries -- Healing and Deliverance Ministry, Intercession Ministry, Out Reach Ministry, Counseling Ministry, Music and Praise & Worship Ministry & Service Ministry. We have our regular meetings on every Wednesday after 7 pm mass in the church hall. During this meeting we have the Bible study and share our views. Among these members we have a core group consisting of 7 members who were elected on 21st June 2012.

Healing and Deliverance ministry of Mumbai dioceses under the guidance of Rev. Bishop Bosco Penha who has appointed Rajan Fernandez and team to pray over people for Healing and Deliverance. We minister and counsel  people who are depressed and suffering from various sicknesses, diseases and evil influences on every Wednesday from 10 am to 2pm in the church premises. Almost 40 to 50 people avail this facility.

On 5th, 6th and 7th November 2010, we had organized the VIII National Catholic Charismatic Hindi Convention at St. Joseph Church, Holy Cross School grounds, Mira Road under the guidance of Bishop Bosco Penha, Fr. Dominic Vas and Fr. Donald Rodrigues in collaboration with National Service Team (NST). People from all over India attended this Convention. All the Associations & prayer groups of our parish and other parishes of Mumbai Dioceses were involved in this Convention. About 4000 to 5000 Christian as well as Non-Christian brethren attended this Convention. As per the NST comments, they have collaborated so far 13 English Convention and 7 Hindi Convention but this was the best Convention they had so far. After this Convention many testimonies were given about Spiritual growth and many people’s life was changed and many were healed. So we thank our parish priest Fr. Dominic Vas and all PPC members, Associations and prayer groups who helped us to make this Convention most successful and memorable one.

After the Convention, in the month of December 2010, we started a full day Hindi Retreat on First Friday of every month from 9 am to 4.30 pm in our parish under the guidance of our parish priest Fr. Dominic Vas. First Friday Retreat team consists of Fr. Donald Rodrigues, Fr. Allwyn Misquitta, Fr. Francis Xavier, Rajan Fernandez and other lay leaders of Hindi Marathi prayer groups of other parishes of Mumbai Dioceses.

Thought of the day
    March 27th, 2019 DT 4:1, 5-9 Wednesday of the Third Week of Lent Lectionary: 239 Reading Moses spoke to the people and said: "Now, Israel, hear the statutes and decrees which I am teaching you to observe, that you may live, and may enter in and take possession of the land which the LORD, the God of your fathers, is giving you. Therefore, I teach you the statutes and decrees as the LORD, my God, has commanded me, that you may observe them in the land you are entering to occupy. Observe them carefully, for thus will you give evidence of your wisdom and intelligence to the nations, who will hear of all these statutes and say, 'This great nation is truly a wise and intelligent people.' For what great nation is there that has gods so close to it as the LORD, our God, is to us whenever we call upon him? Or what great nation has statutes and decrees that are as just as this whole law which I am setting before you today? "However, take care and be earnestly on your guard not to forget the things which your own eyes have seen, nor let them slip from your memory as long as you live, but teach them to your children and to your children's children." Responsorial Psalm PS 147:12-13, 15-16, 19-20 R. (12a) Praise the Lord, Jerusalem. Glorify the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise your God, O Zion. For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; he has blessed your children within you. R. Praise the Lord, Jerusalem. He sends forth his command to the earth; swiftly runs his word! He spreads snow like wool; frost he strews like ashes. R. Praise the Lord, Jerusalem. He has proclaimed his word to Jacob, his statutes and his ordinances to Israel. He has not done thus for any other nation; his ordinances he has not made known to them. R. Praise the Lord, Jerusalem. Verse Before The Gospel SEE JN 6:63C, 68C Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life; you have the words of everlasting life. Gospel MT 5:17-19 Jesus said to his disciples: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven."
