VIRAR, JULY 29, 2009:
Parents’ Day was celebrated in the Resurrection Parish, Virar (E) on July 25, 2009. The celebration commenced with the Holy Eucharist, celebrated by Rev. Fr. Blany Pinto, our Parish Priest. The theme, beautifully portrayed on the backdrops at the altar and in the Parish Hall, and running through the Liturgy, highlighted the important role parents play in the life of their children. Red and yellow roses, each with a white ribbon twirled around it, were presented by each child to their parents. This tradition, followed faithfully in our parish each year, is one that is deeply cherished by parents and children alike.

The entertainment programme began with a brilliantly choreographed musical entitled ‘Noah’s Ark’, the music score being composed by one of our parishioners. The accompanying light and sound effect only enhanced the superb performance by the children. A lively dance number followed which concluded with the word, “Ma and Pa We LOVE You” prominently displayed by the children.

Fr. Gregory D’Cunha, Priest-in-Charge of Jyoti Church, was the Chief Guest and through well narrated anecdotes, he drove home the message that parents should mould their children in the ability to make the right choices, for every wrong choice made entails a consequence. Sr. Sushma, Principal of Carmel School, Nandakhal, was the Guest of Honour and she gave away the souvenirs to altar servers for good performance.

A twenty -minute audio – visual show, put together by Fr. Edwin Colaco and his team, captured the major events of the Parish since last June. The witty captions and candid camera shots held the audience in rapt attention. Thanks to Fr. Blany and Fr. Edwin, who ensure the success of every event in the parish.
