A rink hockey tournament was organised by the youth of Mount Carmel Church and Kripa Foundation, sponsored by Earnest John and Company, Bank Of India, Citizen's Co-operative Bank Ltd. and sound by Aloo Sounds. Various teams with players from all over the country participated in the tournament. Western Railways were the winners in both men and Women categories.
The chief guest Mr. Vishwas Nagre Patil, Additional Commissioner of Police -Western Region in his address to the spectators applauded Kripa and the youth of Bandra for organising such tournaments, particullay these days when synthetic drugs are dangerously eroding into the lives of our youth and ruining their lives. He even went on to recite a stanza of a poetry which got the whole stadium applauding him to a standing ovation. Mr. Nagre Patil congratulated Fr. Joe and Fr. William Athaide the Parish priest of Mount Carmel Church, Bandra, for holding such a fantastic tournament. In his short but crypt speech he stole the hearts of the youth .
Individual prizes were given away by Fr. William Athaide, Marcellus Gomes and Mrs. Rits Pinto. The winning throphies were handed over by Fr. Joe to the winning teams. Tremendous work done by the organising committee of Viren Rasquinha, Claudius De Sales, Ludwig Vesaokar, Constance Amar, George Esteves, Enricho Fernandes, Gavin Vandrine, David Cardoz, and Elaine D'Souza. An applause to Mr. Stephen Monterio, staff and residence of Kripa Bandra for the logistic support under the abled guidance of Fr. Joe Pereira and Fr. William Athaide
