Holy Mary Birthday (Ettu Noimbu) celebration – Kuravilangad Church

Photos of Holy Mary Birthday (Ettu Noimbu) celebration at world famous Marian pilgrim centre, St. Mary’s Forane Church, Kuravilangad. September 1st-8th, fast days for the whole parish. Spetember 8 celebrated as Mothers Day.

The land of Kuravilangad is blessed by the esteemed presence of  St. Mary’s Forane Church, which was built in 105 A.D(just one hundred years before Constantine declared Christianity as the official religion in the Roman Empire). It is believed, Mother Mary’s first appearance in the world, was in Kuravilangad. Our Lady appeared to a few children at Kuravilangad, who were tending their flock in the bushes. Our Lady asked them to build a church at the place from where a miraculous perpetual spring sprouted, a spring which exists even today. The children reported the events to the elders and a church was built there. Rosary procession carrying lighted candles make this celebration more attractive and devotion.
