THE PARISH CELEBRATES WORLD MARRIAGE DAY
WADALA (E)-MUMBAI, FEBRUARY 24, 2013: February 10, 2013 being the last Sunday before Ash <![if !vml]><![endif]>Wednesday, the parish celebrated 'World Marriage Day."
It began with a well animated liturgy at the parish mass at 8.15 a.m. with the couples coming up to do the readings at the mass. Towards the end of the mass, the couples renewed their marriage vows and received the special blessings. The liturgy was followed by a get-together in the parish hall.
We were happy to serenade over twenty-five couples and widows who came in to celebrate the event.
The morning began with a power point presentation, entitled "When you were not looking", that stressed the fact that our children look at us closely and imitate what we do, even when we are not aware, that our behaviour is being closely watched by them.
Then followed a couple of games! The group was divided into four teams and each team had to stage a family scene. I must say that the group came up with real life stories of happenings in families.
The morning concluded with distribution of prizes, snacks and Tea.
