Cultural & Recreation

The Cultural & Recreation sub-committee is perhaps the most popular with KCA members, their families & guests!

Committed to addressing the primary aim & objective of the KCA ie ‘to foster a spirit of union, friendship and self help among the members of the Association and others‘, the Cultural & Recreation team has, over the years, been instrumental in bringing members together & creating the bonhomie that has been the hallmark of the KCA.
The Cultural & Recreation sub-committee is responsible for the 4 major events in the KCA calendar each year.  The plan is that once every quarter, members would have an opportunity to come together at the KCA premises in Bandra; the 4 events are as follows:
1. Thanksgiving Mass – on the first Saturday after Easter Sunday, usually in April
2. Raindrops – a monsoon get-together (that would encompass a special event in July
3. Monti Fest – the biggest festival of Kanara Catholics, in September
4. Christmas Cheer – with a Kodial style celebration of Christmas, in December 
With the weekly Housie requiring a special focus, it was felt that a separate sub-committee be set-up to manage the Housie sessions, while the Cultural & Recreation sub-committee would continue to plan & manage other cultural events & get-togethers for members.
The cultural team looks forward to seeing you at the KCA events & functions.  Keep an eye on our website closer to the event date to get details of the dates, coupon availability etc
Please refer to the ‘Past Events‘ section of the website to view reports & photographs of our various events & functions
