BHINGAR-AHMEDNAGAR, DECEMBER 31, 2013: The last Sunday of the year is traditionally celebrated as the Parish Get together at Bhingar. The Eucharist on Sunday, 29th December 2013 began at 10.00 am and was animated by the Vellangani Zone. After the celebration of the vibrant Eucharist, the members of the various zones conducted games for the different sections and groups of the parish.
It was fun time for all. The day ended at 5 p.m. with people feeling renewed and energized by the camaraderie of the days event. Once a year, this serves as a moment of fellowship and gathering to celebrate unity as one family to increase the levels of communication and communion.
The Marriage Encounter Movement has one executable slogan for acronym family,
F for Fun,
A for Accountability,
M for Mission,
I for Intimacy,
L for Love and
Y for You.
You can bet the parish get-together in Bhingar was all this, and more… a sharing of a meal, a meeting of minds, and a bonding of Hearts in honour of the Little Baby Jesus of Bethlehem.
