Cl. Leon Cruz Ratinam sdb
PUNE, NOVEMBER 29, 2010: The Salesian Catechetical Centre organized the ‘Faith Sharing Day’ for around four hundred school children on November 27, 2010 at St. Andrew’s School, Cinchwad for the diocese of Pune. The standard VIII catholic students from twenty different schools participated and they were assisted by fifty animators. The director of the catechetical centre, Fr. Edison Fernandes SDB and Sr. Caroline D’Souza FMA along with a team of animators lead to students to a faith sharing experience with the theme – ‘You, Me, Our World: Connected in Christ’.

The participants had come prepared with their creative chart works and they had an occasion to exchange their ideas. Fr. Edison Fernandes systematically exposed the theme of connectedness after which Mrs. Raynah facilitated the group discussions and presentations. After a lively session of the theme song, the students engaged in group games which lightened up the moment. The culminating pinnacle of the day was the Eucharistic Celebration which was entirely animated by groups of students.

The children had an enriching faith sharing experience and went back home connected with each other in Jesus Christ.
