Reverend Father Dominic Savio (in picture), principal of the college and president of the St Xavier’s College (Calcutta) Alumni Association, led others in offering tributes to the crib. “Christmas is a festival of giving and is the time of God showing His great love for us — a time of healing and renewed strength, a season to remember and rejoice. After all, the true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of God’s ultimate gift: the birth of Jesus, the Christ child,” Father Savio said in his Christmas message.
