The golden jubilee celebrations of the St Joseph Church, Nandanagar in Indore culminated on August 14.

The final day celebrations began at 8am on Sunday with a short procession of priests, nuns and devotees followed by the Eucharist.

The Holy mass was concelebrated by Bishop Chacko Thottumarickal of Indore, Bishop Leo Cornelio of Bhopal, Bishop Sebastian Vadakkel of Ujjain diocese and around 15 other priests including parish priest, Fr Thomas Rajmanikam.

During the Holy mass, bishops remembered the contribution of Mother Baptista and Fr Henry who helped this parish grow from a small church to one of the most beautiful and biggest churches of the city.

The three-day long celebration that began on Friday concluded on Sunday evening with a cultural programme and community dinner wherein all parish members were invited.

"The three-day celebration included spiritual and cultural celebrations," said Fr Rajmanikam.

Not only the present parish members, but devotees who were earlier a part of the church and have shifted elsewhere were also a part of the jubilee celebrations.

"We have been a part of this church since the beginning and the faith and association from this church is such that our three generations have come to attend this function," said Gracy and Simon David, who have been a part of the parish since the past 48 years.
