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.

Wednesday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Thought of the day
    Wednesday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time LECTIONARY:415 FIRST READING: EZK 9:1-7; 10:18-22 The LORD cried loud for me to hear: Come, you scourges of the city! With that I saw six men coming from the direction of the upper gate which faces the north, each with a destroying weapon in his hand. In their midst was a man dressed in linen, with a writer’s case at his waist. They entered and stood beside the bronze altar. Then he called to the man dressed in linen with the writer’s case at his waist, saying to him: Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and mark a “Thau” on the foreheads of those who moan and groan over all the abominations that are practiced within it. To the others I heard the LORD say: Pass through the city after him and strike! Do not look on them with pity nor show any mercy! Old men, youths and maidens, women and children–wipe them out! But do not touch any marked with the “Thau”; begin at my sanctuary. So they began with the men, the elders, who were in front of the temple. Defile the temple, he said to them, and fill the courts with the slain; then go out and strike in the city. Then the glory of the LORD left the threshold of the temple and rested upon the cherubim. These lifted their wings, and I saw them rise from the earth, the wheels rising along with them. They stood at the entrance of the eastern gate of the LORD’s house, and the glory of the God of Israel was up above them. Then the cherubim lifted their wings, and the wheels went along with them, while up above them was the glory of the God of Israel. PSALM 113:1-2, 3-4, 5-6 Response: The glory of the Lord is higher than the skies. Praise, you servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. Blessed be the name of the LORD both now and forever. From the rising to the setting of the sun is the name of the LORD to be praised. High above all nations is the LORD; above the heavens is his glory. Who is like the LORD, our God, who is enthroned on high, and looks upon the heavens and the earth below? GOSPEL: MT 18:15-20 Jesus said to his disciples: “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have won over your brother. If he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, so that every fact may be established on the testimony of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell the Church. If he refuses to listen even to the Church, then treat him as you would a Gentile or a tax collector. Amen, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again, amen, I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Source: Archdiocese of Mumbai - official website (https://www.archdioceseofbombay.org/) 12 August 2020 - 06.10 hours
