0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!


THE CATHOLIC CHURCH OF MUMBAI EXPRESSES ITS DISPLEASURE AT THE LAST MOMENT ANNOUNCEMENT OF ALLOWING ONLY 50 PEOPLE AT THE CHRISTMAS MASS.

THE CHURCH HAS ALWAYS ADHERED TO EVERY PROTOCOL THAT HAS COME FROM THE GOVERNMENT AUTHORITIES AND MADE SURE THAT THE SOP'S ARE FOLLOWED WITH STRICT ADHERENCE  LIKE MAINTAINING SOCIAL DISTANCING, WEARING MASKS, SANITIZATION, CROWD CONTROL, ETC.

CHRISTMAS DAY IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FESTIVALS IN THE CHURCH AND PEOPLE LOOK FORWARD TO PRAY AND SEEK GODS BLESSING BY TAKING ACTIVE PART DURING MASS. THE NEW G.R. BY THE STATE GOVERNMENT OF ALLOWING ONLY 50 PEOPLE FOR MASS HAS DAMPENED THE PEOPLE'S SPIRIT AND KILLED THE JOY OF THOSE WHO EAGERLY AWAIT TO PRAY AT CHRISTMAS EVEN AFTER FOLLOWING AND ADHERING TO EVERY PROTOCAL.  

IT IS SAD TO KNOW, THAT AT THE SAME TIME RESTAURANTS ,GYMS, MARKET PLACES, HAWKERS ARE ALLOWED TO FUNCTION IN FULL SWING AND THESE ATTRACT LARGE CROWDS WHO MANY A TIMES DO NOT ADHERE TO ANY PROTOCOLS .THE IMPRESSION THAT WE GET IS AS THOUGH THE VIRUS SPREADS ONLY IN CHURCH OR OTHER RELIGIOUS PLACES. 

WE REPECT THE GOVERNMENT'S CONCERN FOR ITS CITIZENS BUT ARE DISHEARTENED BY THIS LAST MINUTE CHANGE WHEN ALL PREPARATIONS WERE MADE KEEPING IN MIND THE GOVERNMENT SOP's. 

WE PROTEST AGAINST THIS DECISION AND FEEL IT IS UNFAIR AND AN ACT OF DOMINANCE TOWARDS THE MINORITY COMMUNITY.

WE PRAY GOD BLESS YOU WITH WISDOM AND LOVE FOR GOD'S PEOPLE.
