The Oratory, Ranwar, 100 Years
‘The’ Oratory at Ranwar is a familiar landmark to residents and passers-by alike. As far as all the present residents of the Village are concerned, the Oratory has always been there. (That statement just about could shave through, by a couple of years, as ‘Aunty’ Flavy Pereira, who’s house, ‘The Trellis’ adjoins the Oratory, will celebrate her 97th birth day on the same day that the Oratory celebrates its 100th year.
To mark this special landmark the residents, past and present, of Ranwar Village, along with friends, plan to organise several events through the year, culminating on the 26th December 2006, in a solemn Mass at the Oratory and a get together and dinner at the Rest Ranwar grounds.
The first such event will mark the start of the
centenary year, on December 26, 2005.
There will be evening Rosary for whoever can attend,
There will be a Mass
at the Oratory on December 30, 2005
Finally, on December 26th 2006 we intend to have a
solemn Mass celebrated at the Oratory.
We invite Ranwarites, in Ranwar, and all the many parts
of the world,
To mark the occasion we plan to publish a small
brochure with the history of the Oratory and of Ranwar itself.
We are compiling a list of Ranwarites and their
families. This list is attached on this page.
We will post any information on this event, on this
This event will be funded by contributions from
