Wealth out of waste, Collage, Face Painting, Konkani Trio and Brain Storming were some of the competition that was organized by the L.A.C.A.R.S. Committee under the direction of its Animator Rev. Dr. Victor Ferrão. The days programme began with the solemn inauguration of the L.A.C.A.R.S. at the hands of Rev. Dr. Aleixo Menezes, the Rector of the Rachol Seminary. Seminarians put in the best of their efforts to showcase their talents. Rev. Fr. Mansueto Fernandes (Assistant Parish Priest at St. Cruz Church), Rev. Dr. Socorro Mendes (Professor of Moral Theology at the Rachol Seminary) and Rev. Dr. Nelson Sequeira (Professor of Canon Law at Rachol Seminary) really had a tough time in judging the various items prepared by the Seminarians. As Seminarians were busy preparing their various items, the judges along with the Seminary Staff were also given an opportunity to make some items out of clay and thus bring out their creative spirit. The last item of the day was Konkani trio singing competition wherein Seminarians were given an opportunity to bring out their singing skills. The group named Fourteen Stars was declared winners of the fiesta.
