BIS #6305 Lenten Katha at DB Chhotaudepur
by Cleric Ambrose Monteiro for BISMumbai
As the Lenten season comes to its finale, Don Bosco Chhotaudepur invited famed Kathakar, Father Ignas S.J and his 05-men team to organize a Lenten Katha for its parishioners. The non-liturgical service from 9 am to 12.30 pm was held at the parish,in which some of the parishioners joined from Kawant, with a total of 150 people present.
Fr. Ignas' beautiful and meaningful Katha service, invited the participants to not consider Lent as a fast (tap), but as a season of Spring (vasant); wherein everything dies in order to come back to life. Clarifying the meaning of Fast (upvas), he shared the 10 types of Upvas; 05 internal and 05 external.
The Katha consisted of repetitive singing, jokes, real life lessons, experiences and facts. The Eucharistic celebration began after the Katha, following which, lunch was served for all.
