Kemmannu February 3: Yet another programme on the Platinum Jubilee celebration year, Elders day was celebrated on February 3 at Kemmannu Church.Catholic Sabha sponsored programme began with a high mass celebrated by Fr. Ivan Michel Rodrigues, Principle of Milagres PU College with Fr. Anil D’Silva being the co-celebrant.

After the mass around 120 elders of the church joined in the church hall for an hour long function, where resource person Fr. Ivan dwelled upon the subject of old age and the ways to handle the age related problems of elders.

Catholic Sabha President Mr. Hubert Lewis welcomed the guests; Secretary Mrs. Jyothi Baretto proposed the vote of thanks. Mr. Felix Pinto compered the programme.

After a few spot games and prize distribution, fresh food cooked by the Catholic Sabha members was served to the elders. It was a great occasion for everyone as it was a nostalgic for many participants who met after a gap of several years.

My comments may be premature, still with all feed backs I got from the elders were encouraging and motivating. So many elders irrespective of their their age joined the holy mass and the function, which is highly satisfying for the organizers. Irene Teacher, Celestine D’Souza and many more who joined and listined to Fr. Ivan who was very good with his homily and his speech at the ceremony, which was very encougening and tonic for the elders because of whom we stand on our feet today. Ronnie I really appreciate your comments.

I have my in-laws in Kemmannu. Since 1980, I have been frequently visiting. My appreciation to Fr. Anil who is so caught up with his work, yet devotes his time to keep the Parishioners united and now with this event the elders who due to old age go through the phase of loneliness and neglect are united in The Holy Eucharist and also meet the others. I assure you of my Prayers Fr. Anil. May God use you in His vineyard where ever you go.
