VIRAR, NOVEMBER 12, 2011: The winter club an annual feature organised by Resurrection Church, Virar (E), concluded with a showcasing of the participants' talents, through a program entitled, "Virar's Got Talent", on November 7, 2011.
The program was inaugurated by our Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Lawrence D'Souza, sdb, with warm words of welcome and the lighting of the 'diyas'. After the recitation of a prayer by one of the children, there followed the performance of a variety of entertaining items that included melodious songs, entertaining stunts, a beautiful dance item and a short adaptation of a comic tele-serial.
Prizes were given away to the winners of this competition and also to the winners of competitions held over the preceding two weeks. As Fr. Lawrence rightly stated, the club provided the children a platform to develop their God- given talents and grow in confidence.
The club, most efficiently organised and co-ordinated by Deacon Osborn Furtado, sdb, along with a team of youth volunteers began on October 24, 2011and included a wide range of workshops on rangoli-designing, lantern making, card making, mehendi- designing etc. in addition to outdoor games in the evenings.
The organisers of the parish kept the children constructively occupied during their vacations. Hearty congratulations to Deacon Osborn and his team for successfully conducting the camp.
The Salesian emphasis on all-round development of a child truly helps them grow and glow. Thank you dear Fr. Lawrence, for being ever- so encouraging.
Long Live Don Bosco!!
