Christmas day reminds us the happy end of yet another year and Christmas has a magical aura that seems to draw everyone into the spirit of celebration. Colourful Christmas trees, glimmering candles, sumptuous cakes, melodious carols and Santa Claus act as the face of Christmas festivity. But the real spirit of Christmas is “about loving, caring and sharing the goodness and graces of God’s love for His people, and the coming of Jesus. We had a unique idea by hosting the Christmas Celebration and the celebration was a BLAST, proving that SMCianz family can ROCK!
The programme under the title “Messiah Christmas Fiesta” began with a prayer Service by students and our beloved principal Rev. Fr Anil Avild Lobo explained the importance of Christmas day celebration. The prayer service was followed by a melodious Christmas carol by the College Choir, accompanied by the glorious entry of Santa Claus. Ms. Mehanaz welcomed the dignitaries and the gathering. The Correspondent Very. Rev. Fr Stany Periera said, “Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. It is the festival of remembering the event of God becoming a human being. The birth of Jesus heralded the Good News to humankind that God loves people and because of this love He forgives people. Let this Christmas be a meaningful Christmas. Let us live the life that Jesus Christ wanted us to live; loving and forgiving our enemies and building a society on the foundations of peace, joy and brotherhood. Then, all these debates of tolerance and intolerance will not find any space in society; and we will live our lives as expected by God, as human beings helping each other rather than tearing apart each other. Let’s look forward to peace and harmony, and not hate, disharmony and discrimination. May the Christmas season bring new freshness, new hope and new strength today and through the New Year 2022!”
Our Chief Guest for the event, Fr Rithesh Rodrigues gave an elaborate and meaningful message of Christmas. The Cultural programme was blended with variety of performances by the students like Christmas dance, Nruthya roopaka, Carol singing. And there were various competitions like treasure hunt, cook without fire and star making. Students have been actively participated in it and had lots of fun.
The vote of thanks was proposed by Mr. Kishore. Ms. Vishaya, compered the programme along with Ms. Jeeva and Ms. Adhira . The guest appearance by Santa Claus by Mr. Vishnuvardhan added more fun and charm to the celebration.
