THE JOURNEY HOME, LITERALLY…

By : Samson Francis

WADALA-MUMBAI, APRIL 02, 2013:  After playing at several parishes across the city, the Gospel band 'Open Secret' played at home for the first time on Saturday, March 23, at the parish grounds.

<![if !vml]><![endif]>Over 800 people experienced 'The Journey Home': the Stations of the Cross in song, reliving Christ's blessed journey.  The performance was edifying.  The Lenten mood was palpable.

Macklin and his band enthralled the crowd till 10pm.  Nobody moved.  It was a sight to behold when hundreds of candles swayed in the lightless ground to the solemn beat. It was mesmerizing.

The effort also brought old and young parishioners together in organizing, publicizing and volunteering for the event.  The ushers too pooled in with their expertise.

It was truly a Journey Home in all respects.
