The CCBI Office bearers, unanimously felt that, just as the inauguration of the Synodal Journey had taken place in each diocese, this celebration too should be held in each diocese on the indicated date, either in the Cathedral or in one or more Marian shrines of the territory.

Responding to this call the celebration of the 'Moment of Marian Prayer' was held in Our Lady of Rosary Cathedral. The Holy Eucharist was celebrated by most Bishop Dr Peter Paul Saldanha followed by short adoration.

Msgr Maxim L Noronha, vicar general, Fr Trishan D’Souza, secretary to the bishop, Fr Alfred Pinto, parish priest, Fr Vinod Lobo, socius and Fr Santhosh D’Souza, resident priest concelebrated the Mass.
