'Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son and they shall call his name ‘Immanuel’ (which means God with us) (Matthew 1:22-23).

The Mass on the occasion of the Nativity of Mother Mary was celebrated at St. Xavier’s Boys’ Academy on 8th September, 2022 at 1p.m. in the Media Room. The mass was celebrated by Fr. Blaise D'Souza S.J and attended by Catholic students of the Secondary section alongwith the staff of all the sections.

The statue of Mother Mary was reverently placed in the Media Room reminding us of the significant role played by Mother Mary in Jesus’s life and mission. Fr. Blaise gave a very apt, reflective and thought inspiring homily in line with the Gospel reading that traced the genealogy of Jesus. He emphasized how the various feasts and festivals unite us and create a sense of oneness among all irrespective of our faith. It was then followed by the Prayers of the Faithful where various intentions were made for all our needs. The mass ended at 2 p.m.
