BIS #2196 CHRISTMAS BASH
VIRAR, DECEMBER 23, 2010: The much-awaited Christmas bash for the year 2010 was held on Saturday, December 18 at the Resurrection church. The event was organized and managed entirely by the parish youth, assisted by the lay-coordinators.
The parish priest in his welcome address stressed that the message of Christmas is essentially the message of giving and sharing. A variety of games were enjoyed by both the children and the adults. The audience watched in rapt attention while children and youth of the parish put up a splendid dance performance on stage.
The dance session commenced with a round of Waltz, followed by a Jive session, Hip-hop numbers and Bollywood chartbusters that had the crowd glued to the dance floor. The highlight of the evening was the welcome arrival of jolly Santa Claus, who gave away gifts to every child. Prizes were given away at the end of the get-together, to the winners of the games and dance sessions.
Once again hats off to our youth, for after animating the parish spiritually with an advent vigil, they organized a cultural programme for the parishioners. They have, proved their capability in organizing mega-events so efficiently.
