I felt privileged to be attending the Eucharistic Celebration which began with the mass at the hands of Bishop Valerian D’Souza at the school grounds. The function was impeccable. The mass marked the inauguration of the 150 years celebrations of our school. Sister Diana was present along with many other sisters of the congregation who had travelled from far off places. Many current and ex-teachers were also present like Ms. Chandy, Ms. Cooper, Ms. Yvonne D’Souza. The most touching event was meeting Ms. Dharmadikari our Marathi teacher. She is 92 year of age but still has the same twinkle in her eye !
At the end of the mass we all sang the school song which again brought back nostalgic moments.
It was nice to meet Cathy Pande (nee Ferrao) after many years (she worked with me earlier and is now in Dubai) and I also met Rita Dias in person (we’ve been in touch on email).
I look forward to attending “The Guardian Angel” on Wednesday, January 7, 2009.
