BIS #6627 Let's Know Our Faith

By Fr Ashwin Macwan for BISMumbai

The AmrutDhara Don Bosco Animation Centre, Kapadvanj, under the leadership of Fr Ashwin Macwan, the Director of AmrutDhara, organized a residential Catechism camp for Catholic children (age 9 to 17 years old) in preparation for their 'First Holy Communion' and 'Confirmation'. The camp was organized to give an intense Catechism course to strengthen the roots of the faith they had received.

The Camp began on the evening of 26 May with an inaugural prayer service, which was followed by a welcome by Fr Pratap Damor, the Rector of Don Bosco Kapadvanj. They were about the Sacraments, the Commandments, tenets of Faith, Bible Study, lives of saints, and so on. There were other extracurricular activities in the afternoons and evenings: Bible Quiz, Creative Expression, Jesus Nite, Talent show and Camp Fire. The children responded well with their interactive participation during the classes and activities.

The camp was concluded on 29 May with the Holy Eucharist presided by Fr Pratap Damor. Felicitation ceremony and prize distribution followed soon after the Mass. Fr Ashwin Macwan expressed his sincere gratitude to the Salesians of Don Bosco, Kapadvanj, and the volunteers who worked selflessly for the success of the programme.
