Babanagar Zone / Holy Rosary Community

The Babanagar Housing Complex has been in existence for 54 years consisting of five blocks as also the Staff Quarters of St. Stanislaus High School. Ever since then, the residents have been honouring “Our Lady of Fatima” by praying the rosary during the month of May. The Small Christian Communities were directed by Bishop Bosco Penha to name our Communities. Following his directives, we the Babanagar zone adopted the name “The Holy Rosary Zone” thus placing our community under the maternal protection of our Blessed Mother as she is very dear to us.

As a community we offer our dearest Mother spiritual bouquet of Rosaries not only in the month of May but also in October as the feast of the Holy Rosary falls on 7th October. On the 2nd of October every year, the members of our community together with other zones go on their annual pilgrimage to the Basilica on the mount. This is followed by light refreshments and fellowship.

Our community consists of 52 families. Each animator is in-charge of approximately 8 to 10 families. The animators visit the families and very efficiently and systematically distribute the Parish Bulletin – “KEYSTONE”, prayer booklets, convey messages and notices in regard to the zone and parish whenever needed as well as the Community Welfare Fund Envelopes.

Our Core group meets on Sunday following the Parish Council Meeting. At our meetings, we strive to follow the seven step method which has indeed helped each one of us grow spiritually. At our meetings we share the news of the community and of the Parish Council.

During the season of Lent, weekly Stations of the Cross are conducted in the community which is well attended by the families and efforts made to prepare the Stations of the Cross. The Stations of the Cross conducted in the homes of the sick and housebound is deeply appreciated.
