On 21 and 22 December 2015, Sr. Mukta Kerketta, Sr. Kishori Minj and Sr. Sumitra Ekka together with the children and young people of the Oratory went to announce the glad tidings of Christmas at Sahera and Coloussi Nagar. The families welcomed them as they went from house to house singing Christmas carols, proclaiming the birth of Jesus and praying for each family.
On 27 December the young people together with the sisters and novices went to the Missionary Sisters of Charity at Doranda, Ranchi to share the joy of Christmas with babies of Shishu Bhavan. The MC Sisters were edified with the noble gesture and the spirit of sacrifice.
The carol team together with the Novitiate community visited St. Mary’s Cathedral, Ranchi to obtain the Plenary Indulgence granted by Pope Francis during the Year Mercy. Most of the children it was the first time that they went out from their villages. It was a unique privilege for them to have visited the cathedral for they only have heard ‘Maha Girja’. May the Year of Mercy inspire many to experience the Father’s Merciful love.
