MATUNGA, FEBRUARY 23, 2011: The North (East) Mumbai Deanery had organized Faith Celebration Day, for the Sunday school children of six different parishes. Hundred and thirty seven children of Stds. VII & VIII along with fifteen teachers came together on February 20, 2011 at Don Bosco, Matunga.
The programme was held from 9 am to 1 pm. Fr. Wilfred welcomed the gathering. The celebration began with a meaningful Eucharist celebrated by Fr. Brian wherein he summarized and emphasized several points about discovering one’s meaning and purpose in life. The liturgy was well prepared by Mr. Lloyd Nunes with participation of all the parishes. The backdrop was very well designed by Our Lady of Lourdes, Sion.
After a good snack break, the children proceeded to make their presentations on the projects which they had studied through the year: Pollution, Inequality, Poverty, Leadership, Bonded Labor, and Housing.
Soon after this, there followed the quiz session, which was based on the books and personages of the Bible which they had studied during the year. The children were very attentive and actively participated in responding to the questions asked. Ms. Sheryl Dalgado was the compere for the programme.
At the end Fr. Wilfred appreciated the magnificent efforts of the teachers and students
