National Justice Day Celebration on 28 July 2021
National Justice Day was celebrated in front of Our Lady of Good Health Church where the St. John de Britto was martyred in order to mark our solidarity in establishing justice. The event started with a short sharing on the life of Fr. Stan Swamy SJ, a messenger of Justice by Fr. Francis Sales SJ. He also highlighted that Justice is the guiding threat for gathering together in his name. It was followed by the candle light procession, adoration and Eucharistic celebration, which highlighted the need for each one of us to become the ambassadors of establishing justice in our day-to-day life.
