Archbishop Rev. George Antonyswamy of Madras-Mylapore diocese was the main guest at the Tuesday event. He blessed the flag before it was hoisted in the campus of this church which is said to have been built in the 16th century and remains as it was more or less.
Parishoners came in a procession to the flagmast end and then attended Holy Mass.
Special prayers and Mass is held every day for the feast.
