Seychelles religious denominations join in the celebrations of island’s Festival Kreol

Seychelles religious denominations join in the celebrations of island’s Festival Kreol ( The Seychelles Roman Catholic Congregation will converge to the Au Cap Primary school on Mahe on October 28 for a special Kreol Mass organized as part of the 27th edition of Festival Kreol.

Religious denominations’ spiritual input in the Seychelles Festival Kreol has been remarkable over the years. For this 27th edition, the religious denominations’ contributions to the Seychelles Festival Kreol are to be commended. They have joined the Festival’s calendar of events.

The Roman Catholic Bishop, Mgr. Denis Wiehe, has given his blessing for this year’s Kreol Mass to be held at 9:00 am at the Au Cap Primary school of Mahe. The Mass, an important component of the populous beach fair “Dimans Kreol Borlanmer” will bring together Roman Catholic Church-goers in a moment of worship and praise presided by Father Lonnie Adrienne of St. Michel Church of Anse Aux Pins.

This year, the Kreol Mass will be held at Au Cap district, the organizer of “Dimans Kreol Borlanmer.” The “Dimans Kreol Borlanmer” was held for the first time at Au Cap. For the past twenty years, it decentralized to either Beau Vallon or Anse Royale. Twenty years on, “Dimans Kreol Borlanmer” is going back to the Au Cap district. The event coordinator said that activities at Au Cap will start on Saturday, October 27, with a horticulture show at the Au Cap district Administration’s office. On Sunday, October 28, the traditional village at Au Cap “Domaine Val de Pres” and the artisanal village at “Vye marmit” will be animated with a series of Creole activities. A make-over traditional wedding serenade will start at the District Administration’s office and converge to “Vye Marmit.” The newlyweds will lead the serenade in a traditional rickshaw, animated by the traditional band “Ravazer de.” At the entrance of “Vye Marmit,” the newlyweds will descent from the rickshaw and the walking serenade to lead their guests to a reception at the “Vye Marmit.” The day will culminate in an open-air Kreol ball. The district Administrator said that traditionally most events at the “Dimans Kreol Borlanmer” are centered on the beachfront, but this year at Au Cap, all the activities will be centralized in the traditional villages, and the public will be able to use the beachfront for their Sunday’s family picnic.

The River Side Pentecostal Church is another religious denomination contributing to the Festival Kreol calendar of events. A Creole Gospel concert is scheduled at the Pentecostal Church on October 28 at 1400 hours.
