On the beautiful Sunday morning a group of members of Life and Hope group members of the widows wing of Mount Carmel church Bandra visited Kripa Vasai on a day long picnic. The group started their picnic with a thanksgiving Eucharistic celebration at Kripa after which were treated to a nutritious breakfast.
After the breakfast Fr. Joe arranged a visit to the Bassein Fort, where they enjoyed themselves with games of housie, singing and dancing. They also mingled and distributed sweets to the orphans of Gonsalio Gracia orphanage.
The group return to the centre where a well spread buffet lunch was awaiting them. The joy was to hear many ask for "JING JANG WAUW" a specialty dessert of Kripa Vasai. They later sang fantastic old folk songs which was enjoyed even by the patients of Kripa Vasai.
In the evening the group were served the special "Kripa Khanda Bhajjiya" ( Onion Pakoras) and after a group photo left for the day.
One could hear them whisper as to how they enjoyed themselves but, were all looking forward to coming back the next year. The group thanked Fr. Joe and the staff of Kripa Vasai for their love and support to making their picnic a memorial event.
One could see tears as the staff bade them ADIOS TILL WE MEET AGAIN.
