CHRISTMAS WITH THE DIFFERENTLY ABLED
Dhyana Jyothi Trust, a charitable trust run by the Carmelite
Fathers and Bangalore Konkani Catholic Charismatic Renewal along
with Good Sam Foundation celebrated Christmas with the
differently-abled on Sunday December 17 in Bengaluru.
The celebration began with a praise and worship led by the blind
themselves. Later Fr. Stifan Perera, OCD Director of Dhyana
Jyothi Turst in his Christmas message said, “Christ is born
especially with the poor and the marginalized to show how God
loves whom the society rejects. The true meaning of Christmas
consists in loving the poor and the needy.” He also thanked all
those who had showed their generosity to give Christmas joy to
these differently-abled. Mr. David of Good Sam Foundation
thanked. Mrs. Nelly Pichardo coordinated the whole program and
volunteers under the able leadership of Godwin Castelino served
the food to the participants.
After the meal, shirts to men, Sarees to women, sweets and
school bags to children and grocery items for week were
distributed to each of the families present.
We thank all our well-wishers and invoke God’s blessings on
