Sunday School Parents' Day 2023
"The most beautiful thing in this world is to see your parents smiling and knowing that you are the reason behind that smile." – Anonymous.
Every year, on the feasts of St. Joachim and St. Anne, we come together to honour and celebrate the unsung heroes of our lives – parents. Parents' Day is not just a calendar event; it is a heartfelt acknowledgment of the sacrifices, love, guidance, and unwavering support that parents provide to their children. It is a day to express gratitude and admiration for the remarkable journey they embark on, shaping lives and moulding futures.
This year, Sunday School conducted a grand celebration for the same. The students prepared cards for their parents and grandparents. The event began after the 9. 30 a.m. mass on Sunday, 30th July A beautiful prayer dance was performed by students of Std. 5 and 6 followed by the welcome song by the tiny tots from kindergarten, Std. 1 and Std. 2. An action song was performed by students of Std. 3 and Std. 4 which was followed by birthday wishes for our parish priest Fr. Nelson Saldanha. The chief guest addressed the crowd. A skit cum dance performance was carried out by the students of Std. 7 and Std. 8 and Bollywood fusion was performed by students of Std. 9 and Std. 10. A peppy Tollywood dance number was performed by children of Raipada. The vote of thanks was delivered by Ms. Anna Fernandes and the event concluded with a fusion by the confirmation students.
In a world where the dynamics of parenting constantly evolve, Parents' Day is a celebration that transcends generations. It's a tribute to the wisdom passed down through the ages, the shared experiences, and the collective hope for a brighter future. So, let's join hands in celebrating Parents' Day – a day that acknowledges the immeasurable contributions of parents, not just as caregivers, but as architects of dreams and the embodiment of unconditional love.
