On the occasion of children’s day Holy Mass was celebrated in the parish church with solemnity by the parish priest Fr. Jugal Kishore. 40 children took part in the Eucharistic celebration along with their parents. As the entrance hymn was sang, the children came in procession, carrying a flower symbolising themselves. During the homily using proverbs and story Fr. Jugal exhorted the children to obey their parents and elders to gain the blessings for themselves.
It was followed by a dance performance by the children of Maryland. In the evening at 4 pm Sr. Shanti Tirkey and Sr. Prisca Bara with Asima and Rinku animated few games for the children. Finally the winners were awarded prizes by Sr. Annie Theyattil.
