BIS #6249 'Christmas Tree' for St. Michael's Salawad Sunday School

by Father Xavier Bandya for BISMumbai

St. Michael's Parish Salawad-Suket, organized a 'Christmas Tree' for its Sunday School students on 23 December 2020. Father Ashwin Mal along with the Sunday School teachers organised a 'Christmas' evening to the accompaniment of Christmas carols.

Father Mal gave a short message inviting all "to share the joy like Mother Mary after the announcement of the angel Gabriel, with faith and hope at the birth of Christ." The students, dressed in the 'nativity characters', portrayed the historical event of Christ's nativity, through musical enactment.

Parish-priest, Father Gregory D'Cunha congratulated Father Mal and his team for the preparation and the effort, with a short message. A scooter-riding Santa Claus hollering 'Merry Christmas' and producing a gift for each child, followed by sharing of sweets and snacks, spread Christmas warmth, on a wintry evening.
