15 Jul Mount Carmel Feast 2013
The School feast – the feast of our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Patroness of the School was celebrated on July 15, 2013. The celebrations began with the Holy Mass at Maryhill Chapel offered by Rev. Fr. Melwyn O.C.D. To foster devotions to Mother Mary, Queen of Carmel, scapulars were distributed to all who attended the Mass.
The kindergarten and lower primary children had their programme where the little ones honoured Mother Mary, Queen of Carmel through songs, dances and skit. Then the students of Class VI – XI hit the stage with their colourful and value based presentations on “The Great Contest – Elijah and the prophets of Baal” which brought out beautifully the origin and devotion to Mary, Mother of Carmel in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament. The students also entertained the audience through folk dances as part of the celebrations. Sr. Carissima A.C. presided over both the functions and in her message told the students the importance of scapular and urged them to imitate and practice the virtues of Mother Mary.
