Diwali supper being planned once again

St. John’s Anglican Church here once again will be hosting an authentic East Indian supper to commemorate Diwali, India’s Festival of Lights.
Diwali is the Indian equivalent of Christmas—a time when people of all religious traditions, including Christians, celebrate the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil, life over death.

While Diwali is popularly known as the “festival of lights,” the most significant spiritual meaning is “the awareness of the inner light” which exists in all people.
Come join us for the celebration this Saturday (Nov. 17) beginning at 6 p.m.
Tickets cost $20 each. For reservations, call Sarah Gervais at 274-5872.
Vegetarian and non-vegetarian items will be served buffet style, including a traditional beef curry, dal (curried lentils), channa (chick pea curry), a variety of vegetables, chapatis (flat bread), and samosas.
The meal will conclude with an exotic Indian sweet.
All the dishes will be homemade, with some being mild and others hot for the adventurous palate.
For those who wish, Indian clothing may be worn.
On a related note, those interested in taking Indian cooking classes are invited to call 274-2540 and leave their name with Lorraine.
