2017-10-26 Vatican Radio

St. Anthony’s Church, Vakola, Mumbai holds a week-long event ‘October Light’ for Sunday School children and enhances the significance of light during Diwali vacation.

The Oct 16 to 21 event organised by the Students Faith Academy of St. Anthony’s Church for the children in the age group of 7 to 14 years included Vacation Bible Joy coupled with foot tapping Dance Workshop and Creative Art & Craft workshop. Handouts and activity sheets, Video clips and power-point presentations made Vacation Bible Joy more effective and unforgettable for the participants. 

The focus was set on the Ten Commandments - two Commandments each day- with the aid of an innovative ready to use kit given by the Ministry of Word and Worship. The creative sessions made the Bible truly come alive and was an enriching experience for the children.

October Light indeed brought out the inner light of the children enabling them to learn and  have fun during their annual Diwali vacation which celebrates the festival of lights. (archdioceseofbombay.org)
