The Children’s party from orphanages situated in and around the Vasai region was held on 27th December 2011. The event began with the celebration of Holy Eucharist led by Fr. Joe Pereira. His Grace Archbishop Felix Machado graced the occasion with his presence. Around 500 children and more than 150 guests and well-wishers attended the program.
Archbishop Felix Machado addressed the children and commended the work that Fr. Joe was doing through Kripa Foundation. Fr. Joe along with Archbishop Felix Machado invited the youngest children from all the ashrams to come forward and cut the cake.
Santa Claus also made an appearance much to the delight of all the children. A number of entertainment programs were organized which the children thoroughly enjoyed. Thereafter the children were invited to the patio and both staff and children shook a leg or two. A sumptuous dinner was served to all present.
