WADALA-MUMBAI, OCTOBER 12, 2013: On 6th October 2013, the youth of St. Dominic Savio Church, Antop Hill organized a seminar - 'Grandma's Pouch: Health in Your Hands'. The resource person for the seminar was Ms. Priya Alphonsa, Research Scientist, and woman commission coordinator-South Mumbai deanery.
This seminar was a different initiative taken by the youth group keeping in mind that one's kitchen can be one's clinic. We see people running to doctors even for small illnesses whereas a cure for it can be found in our home itself. The seminar also gave people lot of input on taking care of themselves.
The seminar was very well appreciated by all. This was seen clearly when the participants came up with number of questions to know more about what was said. The seminar has definitely contributed in making the parishioners realize the importance of health and to treasure this gift from God.
