The parishioners of Dongorim, Calata and Majorda recently celebrated Mother Mary’s Birthday in a unique way. Devotees both young and old joined hands and came together as a community to build and decorate boats at Mother of God Church, Majorda. This is an age old tradition which had it’s origin many decades ago. It is said years ago, some sailors were in the midst of a terrible storm but upon praying to Mother Mary, the storm calmed down. In thanksgiving, the sailors came with boats of flowers to the church.
