Mrs. Shanthi Alva who compeered the programme in her introductory remark pointed out that the children have been imparted with the Catechetical instructions every Sunday in order to give them knowledge about the Christian faith which would help them to grow in spirituality and as the last step of this year the Catechism Day is being observed.


Mrs. Justine Mendonca welcomed the priests, nuns, Catechism teachers and the children for the programme. Those children who had acquired first and second position in the Catechism examination that was conducted on Sunday, 21st February 2010 from 1st to 10th standards and PUC I and PUC II classes were felicitated by giving them prizes by Fr.

These students were: Teena Machado (First), Supriya Machado (Second) and Jenitha Martis (Third).
