AHMEDNAGAR-MAHARASHTRA, 19TH APRIL, 2015: Fr. Rolvin D'Mello along with the Vincent De Paul Group of St. Anne's church Ahmednagar, organized a Bible quiz for the Catechism Students of the parish. Attractive prizes worth over Rs. 24,000/- generously sponsored by people were up for grabs.
The quiz began immediately after the second mass with a short prayer service. Fr. Thomas congratulated Fr. Rolvin and the SVP Group for such a mega venture. He also told the students in his message to learn and imbibe the values of the Holy Bible. The students were segregated according to their age and standards into three categories. The quiz was based on the Bible and also a special round on the life and works of Don Bosco.
Later the students were divided into groups for role plays and other group activities. The whole competition was based on a point system and the prizes were given according to points earned by each student in the individual and group rounds. The first prize was a nice sport bicycle and other attractive prizes followed. Each student who took part in the quiz took back a prize.
The program ended with a small jam session followed by the prize distribution. Thanks to the efforts of the organizing team the children went back enriched and filled with knowledge from the Holy Bible.
