The program started with blessing of new harvest (Novem) at 4:15pm by Fr. Melvin D’Cunha.  Visiting priest Fr. Clifford D’Souza offered Holy mass in Konkani at 4:30 pm.  The blessed grain and dates were distributed after the mass. 


Traditional fellowship dinner was served to more than 3,000 gathered devotees with mouthwatering Mangalorean vegetarian dishes prepared by Little India/M & M Caterers. KCWA follows this tradition every year during first Sunday after nativity feast considering the holiday for domestic servants who do not get a chance to attend any programs which are specially conducted during weekends.  Every year the attendance for the program increases tremendously which is a proof of its popularity and sign of people in gulf missing traditional feast of homeland.
