WADALA CELEBRATES THANKSGIVING DAY
By: Fr. Vivian D'Souza sdb
WADALA-MUMBAI, APRIL 25, 2013: The Parish of Our Lady of Dolours, Wadala, celebrated their Annual Thanksgiving Day on Saturday April 13, 2013. This is an annual feature which began last year.
If the parish is vibrant and alive, with so many formation programs and activities, it is because of the creativity and generosity of our Religious and Lay leaders in the parish. 'Many hands make light work' and that has been the slogan taken up and carried out through all the initiatives and programs during this scholastic year.
Hence the Parish Team felt the need of recognizing and celebrating our common effort to reach out to each family and individual in the parish through the various initiatives carried out in the spiritual, social, cultural, economic and educational fields.
This Thanksgiving Day was our way of saying thanks to the many individuals and groups that helped to build the parish. We had the Thanksgiving Mass at 7.00pm followed by a Family celebration and Dinner.
The Cultural Cell took up the responsibility of preparing the invites and sending them out to the various communities and the Youth kept us on our toes with the games, the grand march and the dance sessions organized for us.
Our Parish Priest, Fr. Godfrey D'Sa, enumerated the different groups of parishioners and thanked them for their availability and service to build the parish. He also spoke of the sad departure of Fr. Sanjay from the parish and asked us to pray for his good health and his future mission in life.
We were treated to some delicious snacks and dinner, catered by one of our parishioners. It was indeed a good and enjoyable evening for those who joined us to celebrate the evening of thanks!
