The members of Fathima ward had decided to visit “WHITE DOVES”- The home for the destitute and give financial aid instead of celebrating the “Ward Day” this year. Hence about forty members of the ward met at Dambel Bus stop on 16th June 2019 at 2:15 PM and headed towards “WHITE DOVES “with great enthusiasm.
The visit started with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament conducted very beautifully with melodious hymns, music and prayers, led by Rev Fr Aquin Noronha, our Parish Priest and the ward members.
Coffee and Snacks were served to all the inmates, followed by games for men, women, and children separately, conducted by Sylvia Lobo and Rufeena Dsouza.
An entertainment programme packed with songs, dance and a Kannada skit “Johnny’s Exam” enacted by Ms. Juliana Crasta and Mrs. Sujatha Mendonca which made everyone happy.
Rev Fr Aquin Noronha addressed the gathering and distributed prizes to the winners of the games and stationery to all children.
Biscuits were distributed to all the inmates.
Mrs. Mable Dsouza, the ward gurkar welcomed the gathering.
Mrs.Babitha Dsouza compered the programme. Ms. Juliana Crasta proposed the Vote of Thanks.
An amount of Rs 15000 was handed over to Mrs. Corrine Rasquinha, the founder and Administrator of “WHITE DOVES “on behalf of all the ward members.
She expressed her gratitude and appreciation to all the ward members. Msgr. Denis Moras Prabhu was present throughout the programme.
It was a great opportunity to spend a little time with the inmates and witness the good work by “WHITE DOVES “which we really enjoyed
