Report & pics by Wilson Saldanha Shirthady/Kuwait

Kuwait, Sep 2: The Annual Parish Fete at the Cathedral was held on Friday August 31, 2007 from 7.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m.  The fete was inaugurated by Parish Priest Fr. Melwyn D’Cunha.  The response for the fete was overwhelming and was difficult to close at 1.30pm due to huge crowd attended.

Different stalls were kept for participation of all age groups.  Music on demand was played and crowd enjoyed dancing to the tune of their choice.  Housie games were played in between.  Slightly used and new items, cassettes, CDs and books donated by parishioners were sold at discounted prices at white Elephant stalls.

The main attraction of the fete was food stalls from different parts.  Mangalorean, Goan, Srilankan, Tamilian, Mumbai (Bombay Chowpati) and Kerala stalls served the specialties of their cuisines and visitors were totally confused to select the dishes as every stall were providing very attractive and typical dishes. 

More than 125 volunteers participated for the success of the fete.  Under the guidance of Fr. Melwyn D’Cunha, every year the summer camp for children and fete is held at Cathedral during summer vacation and the response is increasing every year.  This is a great effort from the Holy Cathedral for the benefit of the children of the parish especially during summer vacation.  The huge numbers of volunteers who are behind the success of these events are really deserve the great appreciation.
