MATUNGA, AUGUST 29, 2012 :  North Mumbai, East Deanery celebrated its Faith Celebration Day for Std. Fifth and Sixth on  August 26, 2012 at Don Bosco’s, Matunga.  

One hundred and eighty four children along with their Catechists from seven parishes participated in this programme. 


The day started at 9am with the Holy Eucharist celebrated by Fr. Derrick Misquitta sdb. The theme for the day was New Evangelization.  The children were served yummy snacks after the Eucharist  and they were then divided into groups.


Two sessions were conducted for the children.  The first session was conducted by Mr. Clint Braganza from St. Paul’s, Dadar.  He explained the meaning of new evangelization to the children. 


A short clipping on St. John the Baptist and Mother Theresa was shown to them to know how evangelization was done by them.  The three elements required to evangelize were “new zeal, new methods and new expression.”


The second session was conducted by Ms. Rhea Serrao, Our Lady of Dolours, Wadala West. This session taught the children how to prepare themselves for evangelization. The four tools required for this were daily prayer, reading the bible, attending mass and fellowship.


The children learnt what is evangelization and were given different examples, as to how they could evangelize at home, at school, at neighbourhood and at the parish level.


At the end of both the sessions the children were given handouts.   The celebration ended at 12.30pm with a thanksgiving prayer.
