feast of Mary M.

On 13th May 2015, the culmination of the celebration of the feast of St. Mary Mazzarello started at 11.30 am with the solemn Holy Eucharist. It was a combined celebration, the feast of St. Mary Mazzarello and the get together with the religious of the Barasat area on the occasion of the ‘Year of Consecrated life’. Before the Mass, the boarders expressed their joy through a prayer dance thanking God for the wonderful gift of God in the person of St. Mary Mazzarello.

The celebrant Rev. Fr. TC Jose SDB, the Rector of Don Bosco Nitika Kolkata in his homily emphasised five main points on religious life: Religious are to show to the people that it is possible to come close to God, they should be joyful, and live a happy and satisfied life which should inspire others to live joyfully. They are to wake up the world through joy, happiness and love. The Church must become a home of communion, of friendship and love. It should be a school where one can learn and a home to experience love.  It was followed by a short power point presentation, entertainment and fellowship meal.
