Refreshing sweet memories

I was just passing by Race Course …suddenly the bells of Saint Patricks Church seemed to ring in my of my ears.Our Saint Patricks School is attached with the Saint Patricks Church.

One of the building that will etched in my memory is the Eichsttat Hall.Many sweet memorable events that still linger in my mind.This the place where I started with the kindergarten interview and ended with my felicitation of SSC board exam.What you see now is new monument replaced by an old one.

The inauguration of our new school building.Our Principal Rev Father Alex Quadros and Bishop Thomas Dabre and it’s me standing behind both 

The Saint Patricks Church 

It’s a very old monument about 166 years old  our school is 55 years old 

In the front of this church there is statue of mother Mary holding infant Lord Jesus in hand.Here almost every student would bow  and pray before entering the classroom everyday and I was one them.I never felt different and never will though I am a hindu.

This is the photo of me (right side ) and my class mate Jijina standing by church door …after carol practice session.The carol which we sang was” O Holy Night”

I would like to sing it once more here 

O Holy Night

O holy night!

The stars are brightly shining

It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!

Long lay the world in sin and error pining

Till he appear’d and the soul felt its worth.

A thrill of hope the weary soul rejoices

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!
Fall on your knees

Oh hear the angel voices

Oh night divine

Oh night when Christ was born

Oh night divine

Oh night divine
Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming

With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand

So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming

Here come the wise men from Orient land

The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger

In all our trials born to be our friend
Truly He taught us to love one another

His law is love and His gospel is peace

Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother

And in His name all oppression shall cease

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,

Let all within us praise His holy name
Wishing my followers all over the world 

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New year in advance

    Nostalgic Memories of singing Christmas Carols when we were kids.
    This Song is so so so beautiful, you can feel your nerves tingling when you hear them singing.
    Bless you Girl for respecting another Faith.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty
    worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
