The first general body meeting of the Kalyan Mathrusangam(KMS) in 2017 was held on 5th March at St. Xavier’s junior college, Kanjurmarg West. The mothers also celebrated Women’s Day in advance. The meeting was presided over by chief guest Rev. Fr. Biju Kollamkunnel, Rev Fr. Benny Thanninilkumthadathil, KMS Director, Asst Director Rev. Fr. Joemon Kurisingal and Fr. Shijo Parayil
The theme of the day was carving out an independent niche for women, so that they may earn their share of respect in society and family. As Fr. Benny said, “women should understand their capabilities and create a space for themselves.” On speaking about the awesomeness of a woman, Rev. Fr. Biju said, “Women have strengths that is amazing and can handle trouble and heavy burdens, she holds happiness, love & opinions.”
As part of Women’s Day celebration, the mothers conducted a dance performance as well as a value based skit. Also, the winners of Kerygma Bible quiz, 2016 were felicitated by KMS director Rev Fr. Benny Thanninilkumthadathil . Warm up exercises were conducted to freshen up the mothers. Several spot games were also played.
It is time that woman must be giver her due for making this world a beautiful place and what better opportunity to spread this message than on Woman’s Day.
