MATUNGA, DECEMBER 22, 2010: The Sunday School children of the parishes of the North Mumbai Deanery came together for the “Choir Festival”, held at Don Bosco, Matunga, on Sunday, December 19, 2010, from 08.30 am to 12.30 pm.

We had a good turnout of hundred and fifteen children along with their twenty five Catechists.

We began the day with the Holy Mass celebrated by Fr. Mathew Coutinho, sdb and Fr. Brian Moras, sdb, wherein he pointed out the real meaning of Christmas - “Christmas is bringing Christ back into Christmas”.

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.

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.

The compere for the event was Mr. Clint Braganza, from St. Paul's Dadar also an ex student of Don Bosco. The excellent way he conducted the whole programme shows that he has truly imbibed the Salesian spirit. Congrats Clint.
