THE PARISH

Description of our community: The Holy Cross was erected by the Goan families of our area in 1959. Every year on 3rd May, people come together to celebrate the feast of the holy cross. Prior to the feast, novenas are conducted and rosary continues throughout the month of May. The Holy Cross is not only venerated by the catholics of this community but also by the people of other faiths in the community. There are 146 christian families residing here. Lelewadi comprises of other areas namely starting from Marol Pipeline (Ashok Nagar, Technical area, Indira nagar, Sai Nagar and Annawadi) till Lelewadi (also called Christian wadi). The Tamil speaking majority gather every year on account of St. Anthony's feast at the St. Anthony Chapel in Annawadi where Tamil Mass and Prayers are held.
 
Eligibility to Join: After completion of SSC (10th Std.)
 
Aim of the SCC: The aim of the SCC is to reach out to maximum people and bring them closer to the church. Helping them to know what the church wants out of them to build the community and stay united.
 
Work done by the SCC: The SCC animators visit homes of the people in the community on various events (communion, death, sick etc.) . Every month they go around distributing envelopes in the houses and remind them of any important notices.
 
Reach of the SCC: The SCC does not only stick to its catholics brothers & sisters but also celebrate with their neighbours of other faiths (on independence day, children day and feast days). Senior Citizens are visited. Any kind of animosity between people are taken care by the animators.
