"Independence Inter-Faith Prayer Service"

Mrs. Loretta Xavier

WADALA EAST, AUGUST 18, 2012  :   In keeping with the directives of the Arch-diocese,the members of the Christian Community at Eucress Complex, Wadala East  gathered together for the Inter-Faith Service which began with the hoisting of our National Flag and the singing of the National Anthem.  The theme for our service was, “Strong Family, Strong Nation”.

The program included the lighting of the lamp symbolizing the light of freedom, the recitation of a prayer composed by Mahatma Gandhi and a prayer thanking God for our family and nation.  The children of the community put up a skits on communal harmony and sang two patriotic songs.
The program was well attended by both Catholics and non- Catholics who reside in our complex.  The message that came through was “Peace cannot be achieved through violence; it can only be attained through understanding”.
