Kuwait, Sep 17: On the occasion of Mother Mary’s Birthday Kuwait Pangla Association (KPA) celebrated the feast which is known as Monti Fest on September 13th 2018 at Harmony Hall, Salmiya as per the Mangalorean traditions & culture.

The celebration started with Priya Cardoza welcoming the guest of honor Rev. Fr. Blany Pinto (Parish Priest, Salmiya, Kuwait), Presidents and representatives of various Mangalorean associations in Kuwait, guests and KPA families. This followed with a welcome dance by Marsha Cardoza.

An age old tradition and culture of bringing the new crop (konshi) by the newlywed couple was performed by Stephen and Lavina Castelino which was received by Fredrick and Benedicta Quadras.

Manoj Rego & Pramila Monis conducted the prayer; thereafter all the children with flowers gathered around Mother Mary’s statue to offer her flowers in devotion and this was a sight to behold. The enthusiasm of the congregation especially children knew no bounds as they sang the hymns ‘Sakkad Sangatha Melyan’ followed by ‘Moryeik Hogalsiya’ while the children venerated Infant Mary’s statue with flowers.

As per tradition the new crop (Novem) was added to milk and distributed to all. The guest of honor Rev. Fr. Blany Pinto gave a festive message and wished everyone a happy feast of the Nativity of Blessed Virgin Mother Mary.

KPA took the opportunity to felicitate one of its senior member Henry Castelino who will be leaving Kuwait with a memento and also welcomed all new members with roses.
