Agape – Easter lunch by the Parish Fathers for us.

Mount Carmel Church Parish Fathers, Bandra celebrated Easter with the Kripa family of Bandra, by hosting a luncheon on 26th April, 2011 in the annex. Besides organizing a great lunch, the parish fathers – Fr. Peter, Fr. Warner, Fr. Byron and Fr. Joe, also took time off to have the meal with the Kripa patients and staff. We all missed Fr. William’s presence as he was out for some urgent work.
Along with a scrumptious meal, the lunch was made entertaining by Fr. Peter, Fr. Warner and Fr. Joe, Kripa staff and patients singing beautiful songs. Fr. Byron in his short speech thanked Fr. Joe the Kripa staff and patients for their continuous support towards helping the parish whenever called for. Fr. Joe on behalf of the whole Kripa Family thanked the Parish Priest Fr. William and the Parish Fathers team for their kind and loving gesture. It was a fun-filled afternoon, surely an Easter we would remember for a long time.
