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.

Thought of the day
    June 27 2019 Thursday of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 374 Reading 1 GN 16:1-12, 15-16 Abram's wife Sarai had borne him no children. She had, however, an Egyptian maidservant named Hagar. Sarai said to Abram: "The LORD has kept me from bearing children. Have intercourse, then, with my maid; perhaps I shall have sons through her." Abram heeded Sarai's request. Thus, after Abram had lived ten years in the land of Canaan, his wife Sarai took her maid, Hagar the Egyptian, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his concubine. He had intercourse with her, and she became pregnant. When she became aware of her pregnancy, she looked on her mistress with disdain. So Sarai said to Abram: "You are responsible for this outrage against me. I myself gave my maid to your embrace; but ever since she became aware of her pregnancy, she has been looking on me with disdain. May the LORD decide between you and me!" Abram told Sarai: "Your maid is in your power. Do to her whatever you please." Sarai then abused her so much that Hagar ran away from her. The LORD's messenger found her by a spring in the wilderness, the spring on the road to Shur, and he asked, "Hagar, maid of Sarai, where have you come from and where are you going?" She answered, "I am running away from my mistress, Sarai." But the LORD's messenger told her: "Go back to your mistress and submit to her abusive treatment. I will make your descendants so numerous," added the LORD's messenger, "that they will be too many to count. Besides," the LORD's messenger said to her: "You are now pregnant and shall bear a son; you shall name him Ishmael, For the LORD has heard you, God has answered you. This one shall be a wild ass of a man, his hand against everyone, and everyone's hand against him; In opposition to all his kin shall he encamp." Hagar bore Abram a son, and Abram named the son whom Hagar bore him Ishmael. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore him Ishmael. Or GN 16:6B-12, 15-16 Abram told Sarai: "Your maid is in your power. Do to her whatever you please." Sarai then abused her so much that Hagar ran away from her. The LORD's messenger found her by a spring in the wilderness, the spring on the road to Shur, and he asked, "Hagar, maid of Sarai, where have you come from and where are you going?" She answered, "I am running away from my mistress, Sarai." But the LORD's messenger told her: "Go back to your mistress and submit to her abusive treatment. I will make your descendants so numerous," added the LORD's messenger, "that they will be too many to count. Besides," the LORD's messenger said to her: "You are now pregnant and shall bear a son; you shall name him Ishmael, For the LORD has heard you, God has answered you. This one shall be a wild ass of a man, his hand against everyone, and everyone's hand against him; In opposition to all his kin shall he encamp." Hagar bore Abram a son, and Abram named the son whom Hagar bore him Ishmael. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore him Ishmael. Responsorial Psalm PS 106:1B-2, 3-4A, 4B-5 R. (1b) Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. or: R. Alleluia. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his mercy endures forever. Who can tell the mighty deeds of the LORD, or proclaim all his praises? R. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. or: R. Alleluia. Blessed are they who observe what is right, who do always what is just. Remember us, O LORD, as you favor your people. R. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. or: R. Alleluia. Visit me with your saving help, that I may see the prosperity of your chosen ones, rejoice in the joy of your people, and glory with your inheritance. R. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. or: R. Alleluia. Alleluia JN 14:23 R. Alleluia, alleluia. Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him and we will come to him. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel MT 7:21-29 Jesus said to his disciples: "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name? Did we not drive out demons in your name? Did we not do mighty deeds in your name?' Then I will declare to them solemnly, 'I never knew you. Depart from me, you evildoers.' "Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock. And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. And it collapsed and was completely ruined." When Jesus finished these words, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.
