Picnic com Pilgrimage to Periyanayagi Church in Cuddalur & Mettur Dam!
We, the Little Sisters of Erode organized an outing for our valid Residents on February 5, 2020 accompanied by some sisters. A luxury bus was sponsored by one of our benefactors. It was scheduled to go to Our Lady of Periya Naayagi Church first, where our Lady appeared to one Mr. Kachirayar and asked him to build a church for her. He built a small church. Later the present Church was built by Verramamunivar ( Rev. Fr. Beschi), an Italian Priest, following apparitions and miracles. We visited the Church and prayed the rosary together with our Residents.
Then we proceeded to Mettur Dam which all were happy to see. Then we came to the park for our lunch, which was prepared at home, but the fresh fish was prepared by one of our Little Sister’s family. After lunch all relaxed for a long time in the park. We returned home with grateful hearts and renewed spirits.
