Jesus said, unless you become like children, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. Likewise, we need to be open and receptive, just like little children, who donâ€™t have barriers of any caste, creed and religion. We need to learn from children and live a life of faith, imitating the life of Jesus. Unless we become like child Jesus, who accepted everything in gratitude, we cannot enter the kingdom of heavenâ€, he stated.
On the occasion, games were conducted for the staff and their families and winners were awarded prizes.
Priests of the management, Management committee members, Advisory committee members, staff and their family members witnessed the entire celebration. Later, dinner was served for everyone.
