UK Konkans and their members joined the Lobo family to celebrate the Nativity of our Blessed Virgin Mary. The weather gods were kind providing us clear sky and good warmth. The rain stayed away and it appeared as though Mother Mary had heard our prayers for good weather.

Dr. Cheryl Lobo briefed the gathering on the importance of this feast to her family and its role to us as a community. She also thanked everyone who worked hard to make this a grand success.
