BORIVLI, JANUARY 27, 2011: A picnic is the best outing for a community or a group to get together and relax. It is a moment to forget one’s differences, to put the past behind and just enjoy the time together. This is exactly what happened when the Parish Pastoral Council Members of St. John Bosco Parish planned an outing to Farm Regency, Gorai. A group of twenty members along with Fr Ronnie, our parish priest and Fr Allwyn crossed the creek and had a memorable tonga ride to reach the spot.
On reaching this beautiful place we were once again reminded of the theme of this year “Care for Creation”. The greenery around with all kinds of plants and animals was really soothing. The rest of the day was spent in games, swimming and of course the rain-dance which helped us build up an appetite. The lunch was delicious and sumptuous. There were interesting games in the afternoon too. One was aptly titled, “Fr. Allwyn Express”, it kept everyone on their feet till we had tea and it was time to leave.
We left the place with thanksgiving in our hearts that the Lord Jesus Christ made each one of us glad and brought us together. We also thank Fr Ronnie and Fr Allwyn for all the support, strength and inspiration that they offer us not only for the picnic but whenever needed.
