OSSAE & SS Golden Jubilee 2014 - 15 Home

Harvest festival 2015 and Sunday School Golden Jubilee closing ceremony will be held on Friday, 16th Oct. 2015 at Al Jeel Al Jadeed School, Hawally. The highlight of this year’s Harvest festival is the blessed presence and participation of our spiritual father, HH Baselios Marthoma Paulose II, Catholicose of the East and Malankara Metropolitan.

The day-long event from 8:00 am showcasing variety entertainment programs by Sunday school children as well as renowned cine artists/ playback singers from Kerala will surely be an enticing experience for us.

The colorful procession welcoming HH Bhava Thirumeni & other dignitaries by the Sunday School children is going to be one of the highlights of the event. In the public meeting, along with HH Bhava Thirumni and our Diocesan Bishop, eminent personalities are expected to attend.

Children’s variety programs will continue until the stage is handed over to cine star Ms. Ramya Nambeesan & team for their mesmerizing musical extravaganza.
Food stalls managed by Prayer Groups, Marthamariam Samajam, MGOCSM & other Charitable Organizations, open from the morning, serving home-made ethnic delicious dishes of Kerala, that are either forgotten or not so familiar to the new generation, are sure to whet the palate of each one of us.
MGOCSM children are organizing stalls to engage the younger generation with games and fun activities. Raffle draws, American auction etc., are also planned for the day.

Early bird raffle draws are open for those who deposit the coupons until 9:00 am. Special early bird coupons will be distributed to all the Sunday School children in Kuwait (irrespective of the Sunday Schools) arriving between 8:00 am and 9:00 am to select winners for three Lenovo tablets and ten (10) Childrens Bible (“Make your own Bible”) autographed by His Holiness.
