Mangaluru, Dec 25 , 2020 : The Christmas star is a symbol of hope, which makes us feel that God is with us. The brightness of the star is associated with the light of Christ, which shines in darkness that guides and shows the right path to life. The evergreen fir tree has traditionally been used to celebrate winter festivals (pagan and Christian) for thousands of years. Christians use it as a sign of everlasting life with God. To bring in the mood and enthusiasm of the festive season among the parishioners, Infant Mary Parish team of Bajjodi here organised a Christmas tree and star making competition. Most of the stars and trees made were in accordance with the requirements of the competition. They were natural and attractive.
The parishioners made use of this opportunity in a beautiful way and showcased their talents. The creativity of the participants was overwhelming. The response was well appreciated by all the parishioners.
