“Celebration of Holy Angels” at CMC’s Sneha Bhavan, Godda, Bhagalpur Diocese, Jharkhand

Beginning from the year 2013, the 29th of September which is the Feast Day of Arc-Angels, is celebrated here as the Holy Angels’s Feast Day. This year too saw a special celebration for children from the Parish. About 90% of parishioners are financially poor and come from villages close by. They are usually very excited with these celebrations and make great sacrifices to decorate their children. The Sisters warmly welcome them and add little wings for them so that they can consider themselves blessed as Little Angels. Every child is treated as precious and included, even from those in the womb to those about 7years old.

This day of celebration includes a time of Adoration, a special Holy Mass, followed by a simple Fellowship organized with the help of generous contributions. A biscuit packet of Rs. 3/- is distributed among the children which they enjoy.

Emphasis is given on a strong teaching during the Homily, which is powerful and well-received. The key focus points for this celebration is to promote among parishioners the value of the gift of life, children and childhood, good moral instructions including modesty and dignity and as always simple parental guidance.
