Mangaluru, Jun 10: Fr Richard Quadros from St Anne Friary Bejai offered the Holy Mass and preached a homily at St Anthony’s Ashram Jeppu on the eleventh day of the novena.
The theme of the day was praying for the unemployed and their families.
"Today as we looked around us we see in the society scores of unemployed people. There are those who have graduated from their studies but have not found a job. And then due to ‘Covid 19’ millions have lost their jobs. Due to unemployment, a lot of families are going through difficult times," he said.
Fr Quadros called on the devotees to pray through the intercession of St Anthony to God that the unemployed may find suitable jobs to take care of their families.
Fr Onil D’Souza the director conducted the novena.
