Please Note
Through the Lenten Meditations let us face life's
Challenges in a Christian manner

Calvary shrine is connected with the passion, death and the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and therefore please –
Ø  Make your confessions at the Shrine. Priests are available. 
Ø  Try to organize your pilgrimage in the early weeks of the season as a rush of people is expected towards the end of the season.
Ø  Do not bring or use alcohol, musical instruments and sports items.
Ø  Remember that this Shrine is situated in a non-Christian area and therefore our behaviour should bear witness to the Faith, we profess.
Ø  Contact the office for accommodation. Telephone No: 0917-901520.
Ø  You are most welcome to make your pilgrimage to the Calvary Shrine Hiniduma even outside the Lenten Season.
