Nehru Science Centre, Mumbai : The Nehru Science Centre is located in Worli Mumbai. It has many scientific exhibits and is open to public visit. People who have keen interest in science should definitely visit the Nehru Science Centre. It is a common location for school visits. It is named after late Jawaharlal Nehru, the former Prime Minister of India.
Reaching the Roman Catholic Church, probably known as the Holy Cross Church, Mumbai, through the extensive crowded local train was also a part of this memorable journey. Kurla station was really tough to cross due to the Mumbai local crowd all over, but we managed some how to reach one of the oldest holy Churches, built during the era of Portuguese in 1588.
According to history, St. Francis Xavier wrote a requesting letter to King Sebestian of Portugal for a land near Kurla to build a church and a house. The church consisted of many assisted priests, who belonged to the Parish Team, in its organization. The organization comprised of Altar Server’s Ministry to involve children in the Church services. It also comprised of Family Cell, Legion of Mary, Hope and Life Movement, Eucharistic Ministers, Lector’s Ministry, Parish Youth Group, Civic and Political Cell, Disaster Management, and many more. There were so many divisions and departments, but with a same purpose of serving humanity and mankind with divine love. The purpose was to deliver the message of peace and oneness.
We also visited the burial ground and paid homage to the dead, so that their soul rest in peace. Since the Church was very old and was built in the mid of the 16th century, a rebuild of the church was done many years ago. There were many guidelines declared for the New Parishioner, Marriages and Burials to practice the same with sincerity. The notice board for the marriage declared prior information of arranging marriage should be given before four to six months of marriage to get the preparations done accordingly. The fees, venue and date were put on the board. There were also the list of SCC Animators and Coordinators with the name and their allotted areas.
The illustration of the Holy Cross Church, Mumbai was huge and it depicted an atmosphere of divine peace, and there was a pin-drop silence. The church is the heritage and landmark of Mumbai with its own identification and values to serve the mankind. With some holy pictures in our mind we moved on, back to the Gateway of India.
