Fr. Joe inaugurates Rink Hockey Tournament at Mount Carmel Church moments before his travel to Germany

The Mt. Carmel Rink Hockey Tournament 2013, sponsored by Earnest John Group of Companies in collaboration with KRIPA FOUNDATION and organized by the Sports Committee of Mt. Carmel Church, was held from the 8th of May to the 11th of May 2013. Around 16 top teams from Mumbai participated in the 4 day event.


            The tournament was inaugurated by our very own Fr. Joe and Rev. Fr. William Athaide. Some of the top teams included Air India, Mumbai Customs, Wenden Caterers, Tata Power, Western Railway and Compeneros. The participants of the tournament were categorized into Open teams and Veteran teams. Every match at the tournament was judged by a team of well qualified referees.


            The Finals saw Air India beat Wenden Caterers in the Opens Category and Ave Maria beat the Kalina Rangers in the Veterans category. Indian Hockey Ace Dhanraj Pillai graced the function with his presence for the Finals match and the prize distribution. It was a beautiful celebration of youthful talent.

The spectators were overjoyed by the tournament and left the scene with feelings of great exhilaration. The Kripa Brigade, in it’s yellow attire, was applauded for their wonderful support, without which the event would have been impossible.
