We Pray For You
-Manoj Koli and Sonali D’Silva
The new academic year 2019-20 was given a warm welcome through a prayer service conducted by Std 10F. It was a right time to give thanks to God and invoke His blessings. The prayer service began with Fr. Rector lighting the lamp followed by a short meditation session where in children calmed themselves and focused on thanking God for the wonderful vacation they had. They prepared themselves to welcome the new academic year with new friends and new challenges.
The atmosphere was overflowing with the melody of songs that gave praise to God. The students came forward with thanksgiving prayers for the school management, teachers and the office staff. Teachers too invoked the blessings of the Almighty on the students and prayed for their well-being.
The prayer service came ended with a profound message by Fr.Rector reminiscing about the hard work and the troubles a father goes through to fulfill each and every wish of his child. His story was a tribute to all the beautiful Daddy’s in the world. A minute of silence was observed for Master Saideep Rapolu, our ex-student ( Std 10 D 2018-19 batch) who passed away during the May vacation.
The Catholic students attended the Holy Eucharist in honour of the Holy Spirit to thank God for an enjoyable vacation and to implore God’s protection for an enriching new academic year ahead. Fr. Elson Barretto and Fr. Bernard Fernandes were the celebrants at the mass. Fr. Elson in his sermon mentioned about the golden coins or talents each one of us have been given and asked the students to use these wisely in their daily life. The students and the teachers prayed for a fruitful academic year ahead.
