The 499th edition of the annual feast of Our Lady of Light Church in Luz will begin on August 6 and go on till August 15. Since this year marks the start of the 500th year period, the church community has made some special arrangements. Cardinal Rev. Telesphore Toppo, archbishop of Ranchi is to grace the flag hoisting event on Aug 6, at 6.15 p.m. Alongside, will be Rev. George Antonysamy, archbishop of Madras-Mylapore diocese.
Rosary, Novena and Mass will be said on all the subsequent evenings with guest priests celebrating Mass here at the church which is also locally called kattu koil because the area where it is located used to be dense scrubland that Luz once was in the past century.
The car procession is on August 15 evening after the Mass.
Fr Peter Thumma is the parish priest. Contact 24992568.
