Darsana Samooham

Darsana Samooham of St. Joseph consists of the devotees of St. Joseph. At present there are about 60 such devotees in this group. They conduct the feast of St. Joseph in a grand scale. It is a three-day festal celebration – being celebrated on 4th Sunday of January every year. The prasudenti (the president of the feast celebration) is elected from among the laithoranmar (electors) who are in turn selected for the purpose from the devotees of St. Joseph. The entire election process and the way the feast is celebrated are in pomp and prestige, following the traditional mores and customs.
