WADALA-MUMBAI, NOVEMBER 28, 2013: As the 410-day ecclesiastical Holy Year of Faith draws to a conclusion, we, like Zacchaeus, are called to repent all those times that we haven't set an example of faith for others. And through the intercession of the martyrs Eleazar and Polycarp, we ask God for the grace to set such an example of fighting the good fight, finishing the race, and keeping the faith, that we will inspire many others to join us on the road of faith so that with them we might enjoy forever the joy at the end of the journey of faith with Christ the King and all his good and faithful servants.
In celebration of the conclusion of the year of faith and the solemnity of christ the king feast, the following activities took place at St. Domnic Savio Church, Wadala (East).
On Thursday, 21st November 2013 the parish was graced by the presence of Fr. Alwyn Misquitta SDB who conducted a beautiful evening of Praise and Worship which set the tone for the Tridum.
On Friday, 22nd November 2013, a community wise skit competition was organized where each community acted out Jesus' parables that gave out a spiritual lesson by analogy or similarity. The stories were based on the life that was intimately familiar to Jesus's original first century audience. Some aspect of an unfamiliar concept, such as the Kingdom of God, was compared to something from everyday life that could easily be understood.
For the first time ever in the history of the Parish, the vibrant youth organized a wonderful and rocking evening of "Gospel Rock" on Saturday, 23rd November 2013. It was an evening filled with various performances by the youth as well as the Legion of Mary and Salesian Cooperator groups.
The performances were based on contemporary Christian music of modern popular music which is lyrically focused on matters concerned with Christian faith, used in pop, rock, or praise & worship styles.
