Yesterday we spent time learning about and celebrating Diwali with our young people. Diwali is a festival of lights and symbolizes the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance”.
To honour this holiday youth had the opportunity to participate in a henna activity as well as have a special meal. Our dining rooms were decorated with marigolds and diyas (lamps) and informational posters about Diwali were posted so youth and staff could learn more.
Our Kitchen Team created a beautiful meal including:
- Paneer Chickpea Curry Masala
- Basmati Rice
- Samosa donated by one of our staff members
- Naan bread
- Mixed veggies
- East Indian Sweets
Happy Diwali to those celebrating in our Covenant House community!
