Gregory D’Cunha sdb
JYOTI, AUGUST 25, 2008: On August 19, Mazzarello Centre, Uttan was host to 37 young boys and girls who have completed their SSC and HSC recently. Sr. Monica, the Superior, and the other Sisters in the community, had decorated the hall beautifully, giving it a distinct Marian touch. The evening commenced with a short prayer service. After that, Fr. Richard D’Silva, the main animator for the programme, took over. He led the young people through a meaningful Marian experience, using a variety of games and other activities. Fr. Gregory D’Cunha and Sr. Neelima addressed the group and shared their insights on Mary. While Fr. Gregory D’Cunha delved on the theme of how Mary helps us in our life, Sr. Neelima focused on the qualities of Mary that we should strive to imitate in our life. The programme concluded with a short film on the theme of ‘Vocation’ – how God uses different means to call people to work in his vineyard.
