BIS # 1157 MISSION SUNDAY CELEBRATED AT ALIRAJPUR

Colin Pereira sdb OCTOBER 20, 2008: Mission Sunday was celebrated here at Don Bosco Alirajpur on October 19, 2008 in a spirit of charity and generosity. A meticulous prior preparation had gone into making this day a success. The day began with a solemn Eucharistic Celebration animated by the boys of the technical school. During the homily the Parish Priest Fr. Dominic Martis, very beautifully explained the never ending mission of every Christian: to be messengers of Christ. The Eucharist was followed by the raffle and then the auction, which were fund raisers for the poor and needy. In order to make the day enjoyable, a fete was organized by the boys of the School of Excellence, assisted by the technical boys, for the children and the parishioners. The money collected will be forwarded to rebuild the destroyed houses in Orissa. All in all it was a day that saw an overwhelming response in support of the poor from the children and the parishioners.
