Morning sounds

This is the sound of the call to prayer from the mosque about 10 blocks away from our hostel here in south Kolkata.

Hauntingly beautiful, this sung – and unaccompanied – call to prayer is known as the “Adhan.”  Sung by the muezzin five times a day, it calls all Muslims to prayer.  These prayers are incumbent upon all Muslims.

Today, Sunday, we will begin our day with our usual Morning Prayer which is led by a different PSR student each day.  After breakfast we will join the nearby parish community of Saint James, a member congregation of the Church of North India.

In this City of Joy, we join with other peoples of faith in praise and worship. We are blessed to be here!group after church
