Arlene Mathiah BORIVLI, APRIL 26, 2009: 32 children from St. John Bosco Parish, Borivli received Jesus for the very first time on April 19, 2009. The principal celebrant for the solemn Eucharist was our parish priest Fr. Ronald Menezes. The theme chosen for this celebration was “I Am The Bread Of Life”. The Church was exquisitely decorated for the occasion by the Sunday School teachers and the liturgy was also animated by them. The joy of welcoming Jesus into their lives and renewing their baptismal promises was evident in the cherubic smiles of the children. After the Eucharistic celebration there was a get-together in the parish hall. During this programme, the children were presented certificates, rosaries and other mementos, which were personalized with the name of the child written on each. While we continue to pray for these first communicants, we thank all those responsible for making the celebration an enriching experience.
