Legion of Mary Get-Together 2011
The members of the Legion of Mary (Seniors and Juniors) came together to celebrate the annual Praesidium function and the Birthday of our dearest Mother Mary on September 11, 2011. We began with the recitation of the opening prayers and rosary. This was followed by a warm welcome by the President of the Junior Group, Lizel Lobo followed by an Inspiring talk by our Spiritual Director, Fr. Denzil on “the Legion as one
There cannot be a birthday celebration without the cutting of cake. So we Legionaries, gathered around the table, holding one another’s hands in a symbolic way, sang the birthday song to Our Lady and cut the cake.
The show was then handed over to Quinton and Sharol, our compares for the evening who led us into a variety of brain whacking entertaining games and a quiz prepared by Fr. Denzil. The quiz not only entertained us but also helped us to increase our knowledge .It was a great joy to have with us our Parish Priest, Fr. Henry D’Souza and Fr. Joe who added grace to this grand occasion. In a brief speech, Fr. Henry appreciated the Legionaries for the services rendered to the parish of St. Thomas and urged to continue the same. The Legionaries then set the floor on fire for a short while after which the president of Senior Group, Cassina Netto proposed the vote of thanks.
Finally it was time for a delicious dinner prepared by our own members with a variety of delicacies and deserts. Our Parish Priest, Fr. Henry D’Souza led us into the grace before meals.
This was one of the best get-togethers we, the Legionaries ever had.
