Christmas Day Celebration
The Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, Government Dental College and Hospital Mumbai, with the motivation and enthusiasm of Dean Dr. Wasundhara Bhad (Patil) Ma’am and guidance of Prof.& Head Dr. Tabita Joy (Benjamin), celebrated the festival of Christmas. The program started with the Anchor Dr. Garima Dixit reading from the Bible Isaiah 9:6-7, followed by sharing about what is Christmas and its importance by Dr. Tabita Joy, who shared that often more importance is given to the Christmas tree and Santa Claus, while the Birthday boy is forgotten while celebrating Christmas. But Christmas is the Birthday of Jesus Christ who came to the earth to lead us from darkness into His marvelous light and give us free salvation and redemption from sin, dying on the cross and rising again into everlasting life. Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season. He gave freely and it teaches us to give freely to others and share in spreading joy with an Attitude of Gratitude.
It concluded with Dean Ma’am’s wishes and cutting of the cake by Dr. Suryakant Powar and prayer by Dr. Tabita Joy.
The Wonderful decoration was done by the Post Graduate student, Interns and staff of the department under the guidance of Dr. Manisha Ahire Asso. Prof.
