    Shopping and Church

    Fourth semester at SCMHRD is one of the most relaxed semesters. We have Neev just around the corner and so I am relatively free. Decided to go to church today. Maria was pleased since she has been after me to do so for a long long time! Am sure my Mom too was pleased. Today was the feast of Christ the King as well as it happens to be my brother’s birthday. The feast of Christ the King marks the end of the liturgical year. This is usually a big event in my church back in Mumbai. Next Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. I can finally start playing…

    Party, Dinner, Party, Dinner

    The last week has just flown by with most of my time was spent not studying. Wednesday – Party 1 On Wednesday, we were singing for a Silver Wedding mass. The mass was held at Atma Darshan and the reception was at Le Royal Meridien, for which the entire choir was invited. Had just dorned my normal formals for the mass, so went home to pickup my blazer as well as drop off the bike (Never drink and drive my mama said 😉 ) U. Conrad picked me up and we were among the first to reach the reception. Ate, drank, danced and feasted on food and desert. Got dropped…

    The Holy Week

    This post just about sums up all of Holy Week. To begin, we’ve had practice Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday for our singing at Good Friday 2007. Two things that we do and do good besides the singing are the hymn sheets and the dressing. This time I made the hymn sheets. It’s in PDF format for those interested. Spent all of Wednesday morning with U. Conrad and James in church arranging for the printing work done as well as practice for the part of Pilate in the Passion (we were reading). Changing from our regular choice of colors, we decided to go all black with white ties this year…

    From Friday the 16th

    Friday as usual was choir practice. This time in preparation for Saturday’s Silver Jubilee mass and Sunday 8.30am mass. Managed to cock up “We are here to praise you”. Guess, I’ve got so much running through my mind now a days that certain older stuff just takes a while to recollect 🙁 Saturday was a relatively quieter day, atleast till evening. Picked up James and headed over to Holy Trinity Church in Powai. Heading there wasn’t a problem at all because the roads were perfectly clear. Helped because we left only at 5.20pm for the 6pm mass!

    Six Years of Song!

    Anniversaries always skip my mind! On 23rd I completed six years in my choir. Well, it sure has been a long long time. I never ever expected me to ever end up singing. But, it has been an enjoyable journey, which I plan on continuing as long as I can! 🙂

    Long week went by, another ahead

    Monday to Sunday has been a long week. Monday began with me rushing home after work to make it in time for choir practice. We were singing for Maundy Thursday and needed the practice. Tuesday was the C&A Annual Party in celebration of us reaching (if not crossing) our sales target. This time it was held at The Residency in Powai. Gorged on the amazing food there. My size definitely doesn’t show my ability to eat 😀 And so was the desert … 😀 The party went on till past 10.30pm and we had to get back to work the next day on time!

    The Day after Christmas

    I read a card the other day that said Happy Birthday today, Happy Hangover Tomorrow!. Well, I don’t drink, so that wouldn’t apply to me, but yes if I had gone to work, it would definitely have felt like one! Took 26th off from work and I realized this was much needed. Was only able to sleep around 6am on 26th morning after the great Christmas Dance. Had to go to church in the evening to sing for a mini-fest that happens every year. Was really shocked to see how low scale it was this year. I guess this was probably because we had other major church activities this year.…

    St. Cecilia’s Feast

    Monday and Tuesday were pretty much evenings with the choir. The past three days at work have been pretty exhausting so both Monday and Tuesday were welcome breaks. Monday was choir practice, which I finally attended after a long time. Tuesday is St. Cecilia‘s – the Patron Saint of music and choirs – feast, U. Conrad decided to have a special mass followed by dinner at McDonald’s at the Hub in Jogeshwari. Our Parish allowed us to celebrate mass at 8 pm so that us working folks could make it. So yesterday, we had a small mass with 18 of us choir members plus our Sacristan Allwyn. Mass was celebrated…
