Rector's day sparkles
May 25, 2016 Wednesday was a sparkling day at the historical monastery of Scala, as the Rector Rev. Fr Ivan Pinto celebrated his gift of life. The day was a mixture of happiness and jubilation initiated with a morning prayer where the giver of life was praised and thanked for the numerous blessings showered upon the birthday baby. The official celebration commenced at 6-30pm with the thanksgiving Eucharistic celebration presided over by the rector who was the center of attraction. Fr Rudolph Pinto, the vice rector in his introduction invited each one to thank God for the person of Fr Ivan Pinto and pray for his intentions. During the homily, Fr Ivan gave a clarion call to practice the message of the Gospel “the attitude of a servant” and to be open minded in our disposition. The spiritual celebration was followed by the birthday dinner, where Fr Sunil Rodrigues invoked God’s blessings upon the meal. Later as the birthday baby crossed the knife over the cake, all the community members with one voice sang the birthday song “Tanti auguri a te” and conveyed birthday greetings. The birthday dinner was organized by Fr Lancy Lewis, the procurator of the community which was filled with variety of dishes both Indian and Italian. The sparkling rector’s day was concluded with a traditional hymn to Mother Mary in Konkani “tum kalzachea gondya mhojea”.
