The Catholic teachers of Auxilium Convent School, Barasat along with the Principal Sr.Clara Saminathan and the Vice Principal Sr. Mary John went to Bandel Basilica on the 15th of July to spend the day in prayer. As soon as we reached, we made our way to the Retreat House and everyone was made to feel comfortable in their respective rooms. We then proceeded to have our breakfast. Thereafter, we started our day of recollection in the chapel under the guidance of Fr.Tony SDB who led all of us into the prayer moments. His inspiring words and interactive conversations strengthened our faith in Jesus. It was an enriching session with him and helped us to take a firm promise of making the presence of Jesus active in our lives.
There was a counselling session with Sr. Lizzy who guided us in every way possible by bringing us closer to God. It was followed by a Rosary service and lunch. This was followed by a movie ‘God is not dead’. We also had the opportunity to make a good confession at this hour. We concluded our day in prayer with a Eucharistic celebration. Ms. Silvia Gomes thanked Fr. Tony on behalf of everyone for a highly inspiring and enriching day. Ms. Rita Biswas thanked Sr.Clara and Sr.Mary for giving us this wonderful chance and making all the arrangements for the day. We, then departed for our journey back home at 6pm.
