Mangaluru, Dec 23 : Christmas is a joyous time for giving and for sharing, for laughter and fun, also for coming together with family and friends.

It was a moment to remember for all those who attended the celebration of the birth of Jesus and its meaning shared at St. Raymond’s school on 17th December 2020. The essence of Christmas came alive as teachers got together and shared the merriment. The delightful celebration included various activities starting with a prayer service, lighting of the diya and also intercessory prayers remembering the needy.

The environment was blissful with the melodious voices of teachers, singing the Christmas carols. There was a tableau “The birth of Jesus Christ” enacted by the teachers, which was followed by exchanging of gifts with their Christmas friend among the teachers. Thereafter, the headmistress, Sr. Rita Sharal shared her Christmas message with the teachers and wished each and everyone.

Instilling traditional values in our children, the school organized various Christmas activities in three categories, such as kindergarten, classes 1-4th and 5-7th. Activities such as drawing the star, Santa Claus, preparing crib, stars, preparing snow man, Christmas bells, Christmas tree, greeting cards were the main attractions of the day. The activities were open to all the students for those who were interested and students actively participated in the same.

There will be Christmas, because God is with us and we will share as Christ did in the manger – our poverty, our tears, our trials, our anguish, and our conditions. There is a need for divine light. Covid -19 brings hope to those who place their hope in the divine and take necessary precaution. There will be Christmas and we will sing carols to spread the message of this season. May this Christmas bring us the light of hope, peace and joy.

Wishing you all a merry Christmas and prosperous new year - 2021.
