    Lent is an intensely penitential time to contemplate what Jesus Christ really did for us on the Cross. A time when the youth are called upon to take on equal responsibility as they would for activities during Christmas but  this time for the Resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ. Fr Noel Menezes, heads the Ambassador of Christ (AOC) programs which includes the annual ‘Son Born’ programme that is held during the advent season. The concert is a four hour musical with praise, Worship, Surrender and Grace. The third edition of ‘Son Born’ which was held in December 2017, featured the original musical called “The Woman at the well” and the musical evening included original songs of praise and worship by the AOC musicals. Fr Noel has a special connection with the youth of Goa, as he has been closely working with them for many years.

Fiscal Deficit increased from Rs 948 crore in 2014-15 to Rs 1,483 crore in 2015-16. CAG highlighted several key parameters where Goa’s performance was not satisfactory and thus indicating that the previous regime’s inability in managing the state fiscal issues.Due to increase in the fiscal deficit by 56.43% and interest payment by 6.64%, the primary deficit increased to Rs 408 crore in 2015-16 from a primary surplus of Rs 60 crore …
