Spiritual Development in the Parish
Every Saturday special Marian devotion is conducted along with mass for the people. All the parishioners come together for the rosary and honour the Virgin Mother Mary by reciting rosary and saying prayers. In the months of September and October they become the daily order of the day and specially in the month of October rosaries are recited in individual houses for which some parishioners, youth and Religious sisters go along with the Parish Priests and thus Marian devotion is made alive to the faithful.
In our SVD community at Sangareddy two priests are involved in pastoral and educational ministry. Meticulously two of us work for the spiritual growth of the parish. Regular mass is celebrated in the morning and rosary and prayers are said in the evening
Every First Friday, mass for the Sacred Heart is celebrated with an Eucharistic adoratin, every Tuesdays mass for St.Antony is celebrated and on Saturdays devotion to Mother Mary is kept up.
Two female religious (Karuna and Nirmala convents) are situated in our parish; regular mass is celebrated by one of the priests during the week.
