MUMBAI, DECEMBER 26, 2009: The Sunday School children of the parishes of the North Bombay Deanery came together for the “Choir Festival”, held at Don Bosco, Matunga, on Sunday, December 20, 2009, from 08.30 pm to 12.30 pm.
The day with the Holy Mass celebrated by Fr. Wilfred D’Souza, sdb, wherein he pointed out the real meaning of Christmas - “Christmas is giving more than receiving”.
The festival had a good turn out of 250 children along with their Catechists. Each parish came with their own ideas and expressed the Christmas message through Carols, Skits, Dance & Musicals. It was clear from watching the children perform with their costumes and other accompanying stage material that much thought, preparation and practice had gone into what the audience enjoyed watching on the stage.
During the break the children filled up their tummies with delicious snacks. Hats off to all the teachers who took the initiative in preparing the children for this event and for heralding the birth of our Saviour, Lord Jesus Christ.
