Roce Ceremony

This is sort of an anointing ceremony that takes place in some of the Indian Christian communities like that from Goa or Konkan. It is similar to the Haldi ceremony of the Hindu weddings and takes place on the eve of the wedding day. It involves the bride and the groom taking a ritualistic bath in their respective homes. The bride/groom is anointed with oil, where the participants, generally relatives, dip their forefingers in the oil and perform the sign of the cross on the forehead of the bride/groom. Oil drops are poured on ears and on the head, followed by coconut juice or roce, which is rubbed on the head, face, hands and feet. After this, the bride/groom is bathed with water. A roce prayer and then dinner with drinks and a light party or event follow the whole ceremony. This can also be arranged by 7events.  A photo booth can also be provided to catch this unique moment, which is precious to the bride and her family.
