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
    20 Sept 2021 - Memorial of Saints Andrew Kim Tae-gon, Priest LECTIONARY: 449 FIRST READING: Ezr 1:1-6 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and also put it in writing: “Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has charged me to build him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever is among you of all his people, may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and rebuild the house of the Lord, the God of Israel—he is the God who is in Jerusalem. And let each survivor, in whatever place he sojourns, be assisted by the men of his place with silver and gold, with goods and with beasts, besides freewill offerings for the house of God that is in Jerusalem.” Then rose up the heads of the fathers' houses of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and the Levites, everyone whose spirit God had stirred to go up to rebuild the house of the Lord that is in Jerusalem. And all who were about them aided them with vessels of silver, with gold, with goods, with beasts, and with costly wares, besides all that was freely offered. PSALM: 126:1b-2ab, 2cd-3, 4-5, 6 Response: The Lord has done marvels for us. When the LORD brought back the captives of Zion, we were like men dreaming. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with rejoicing. Then they said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.” The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad indeed. Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the torrents in the southern desert. Those that sow in tears shall reap rejoicing. Although they go forth weeping, carrying the seed to be sown, They shall come back rejoicing, carrying their sheaves. GOSPEL: Luke 8:16-18 “No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light. For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care then how you hear, for to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away.” Source: Archdiocese of Mumbai official website (https://www.archdioceseofbombay.org/)
