BIS #6749 Parents' Day at Jyoti

By Fr Richard Burkhao for BISMumbai

The youth group of Jyoti Parish, along with the Catechism children and teachers, organised a delightful and meaningful Parents' Day programme on 14 August 2022 at Jyoti Mata Church. After the Sunday Eucharist, around 60 parents gathered for the programme.

The program began with an action prayer song by the little children. Later, all the Sunday school children welcomed the gathering with melodious singing. The senior catechism children, on their part, performed a lively dance. It was followed by a very meaningful skit entitled ‘Accepting Differences’, performed by the youth which gave the message of accepting and appreciating the differences in the family.

Fr William Falcao, the Parish Priest, addressed the gathering, in which he appreciated and congratulated all those involved in the organisation of the programme for their wonderful performance and for all the effort behind it. He also highlighted the importance and significance of family in the life of a person. Later, the youth entertained the parents with a dance performance.

One of the parents, Mrs Sarika Burboz, expressed gratitude on behalf of the parents, appreciating and congratulating all those responsible for the delightful, energetic and meaningful performance. The program concluded with the snacks and a short dance session for the children and parents.
