A Faith Strengthened

St. Anthony's Kochchikade, was declared open after renovations following the April 21, Easter Sunday bomb blasts.  Here, the faithful gather at a special mass held to mark the re-opening of the Church on June 12th.   
St. Anthony's feast is celebrated on June 13th every year, and this church in particular draws a large crowd for the feast.  It is one of the most popular churches in the country, and the saint is venerated by both Catholics and non-Catholics alike.  
The customary preparations of Novena's and vespers that precede the feast and the procession held on the day of the feast were cancelled this year.
