A fortnight of celebrations marked this year’s Christmas at Asha Kiran, Dharuhera. The carolers of Kanai Church, Gurgaon visited Asha Kiran on December 12, with Santa distributing gifts to the children here. The festive spirit continued on with the celebration of Christmas at Asha Kiran on December 17. Present for the celebration were the District Collector, health officer of Dharuhera, principal, and teachers of the school were our Children study along with the religious of the neighborhood and our local benefactors. A tableau on the Nativity of Christ touched the heart of all present. The families of the children of Asha Kiran gathered on Christmas day to celebrate the birth of Christ with songs and dances. We were overwhelmed with joy to have our CLTs, Sisters Susan Gatz and Sangeeta Ayithmattam for the celebrations on Christmas day. Our celebrations continued on Dec. 26 as well with the Archbishop of Delhi celebrating the Holy Eucharist and sharing a banquet with all of us. The birth of Christ, our Saviour, has indeed ignited the gifts of love, peace and joy among all our children, their families, and our collaborators.
