entertaining games were conducted by the members of
the Carmel Kutam under the leadership of Mrs.

It was truly a family celebration as the members of
the Carmel Kutam came together to cook the festive
meal which was shared by more than 250 people who
joyfully partook in the entire celebration. This is
for the first time the festive meal was cooked here
by the members of the Carmel Kutam who in a special
way experienced the theme of the feast personally.
It was indeed a family celebration. Congratulation
to all those who contributed their might to make it
a memorable event. May Infant Jesus bless us all.
