 During the Way of the Cross, the statue of Jesus carrying the Cross and the statue of Mother Mary were carried by the youth of Derebail parish from the 1st to the 14th station. Rev Fr Austin Peter Peres – Parish Priest of Derebail Parish, Rev Fr Gerald Francis Pinto – Residential Priest, Rev Fr Gratian Alvares – Parish Priest of Kupepadav and former residential priest of Derebail Parish and Derebail Parishioners took part in the Way of the Cross.

Rev Fr Gratian Alvares then read the Word of God from Mathew 27:27-31, after which he gave a brief reflection of the same. During the reflection, Fr Gratian spoke on ‘Individual Suffering’ and gave two examples related to it. He also explained the reasons why Jesus Christ suffered and died on the Cross. “Whenever we help others or do good to others, people try to stop us from doing good, they speak ill about us, they try to spoil our name. During such situations, we must remember that even Jesus Christ and our Catholic ancestors had faced the same challenges. Hence we must be bold enough to face such rejections.” added Fr Gratian Alvares in his reflection.

 The parish choir aided in adding solemnity to the service by singing hymns. The ceremony concluded with a short procession where parishioners accompanied the youth in carrying the statues from church grounds to Parish.
