A short and simple program was put up by the students of the High School in the school hall at 12.30 pm. to commemorate the death anniversary of Mother Claudine Echernier, Foundress of the Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod, At the start, Sr. Edith Menezes lit the Diya. Leading all into prayer, Mrs. Perpetua Bocarro prayed for the Sisters of the Cross who work all over the world with selfless love, making the good God known and loved. The comperes for the programme: Ms. Rachel Gonsalves and Ms. Sadhana Patil. Mother Claudine practiced the value of Poverty throughout her life. Students of Std. IX performed three short incidents from her life which focused on her simple way of living. Mother Claudine lived a very humble and hidden life. Her faith and confidence in God gave her great courage and made her Superior. But she accepted only through obedience. Through a skit, the students of Std. VIII showed how we too, in our daily life can be humble like her. Through a skit, students of Std. VII brought alive the virtue of Patience when Mother Claudine taught young girls to be self independent. She taught them to sew, cook and be of help to all those in need. The students then gave a small bouquet to the Sisters present for the program as a token of love. Prayer is talking to God. In a shadow act, students of Std. VI brought out Mother Claudine’s virtue of Prayer. Like her, we can pray anywhere, any time. Mother Claudine always had great Trust in the Divine Providence. Through a skit, the students of Std. V showed an incident in Mother Claudine’s life where the sisters believed that God listened to her prayers. Students of Std. X presented a one act fictitious play, ‘Body Scan of Mother Claudine in Heaven’ which brought out her life lived to make the good God known and loved. The programme ended by everyone singing ‘Hail Claudine’.
