On Sunday- 17th of March the members of Holy Cross ward, Kodical A gathered at the house of Mr. Xavier D’souza for the monthly ward meeting at 5 pm. 41 members including children were present. After the meeting under the leadership of the Gurkaar Mr. Norgi Dsilva women’s day was celebrated.
Mr. Leo Rego addressed the gathering and spoke on the role of women in the present world. He mentioned about how Mother Mary has been the greatest example of humility, simplicity and strength. He also mentioned about many women in the bible who were instrumental in drawing people closer to God. He highlighted on women in power who lead in administrative, politics, education and other areas and how the women of this ward could imbibe the values from Mother Mary and be an example in their families, church and the society.
Mr Norgi Dsilva recited a poem composed by him on the Impact of woman as a mother, sister, wife and friend. The senior women were then asked to cut the cake while the children sang “showers of blessings”. All women were felicitated with a beautiful rose.
This meeting was a memorable one for the women gathered and all greatly appreciated this noble gesture of honoring and making them feel special.
