“Our vocation, to be Beautiful, must be full of thought for others…@” – Saint Mother Teresa
With the purpose of adding more beauty to the formation, we convoked the first formation meeting of this academic year on 29th, June, 2018. The meeting was held in the presence of Rev. Fr. Provincial, Provincial Councilor for Formation and Provincial Bursar. At the very outset, we followed the enduring tradition to take time to pause, turn around to look at the fruitful year gone by, achieving both the expected and unexpected, while setting various milestones and then synergizing ourselves to move ahead to face the challenges in the present academic year, with a positive attitude. The main concerns of the meeting are:
- The Graded Formation, which is at the infancy stage in all the minor seminaries of our congregation. It was reported that there is both positive and negative vibration of the Graded Formation that we began in this year.
- The minor seminary staffs took the forum to have a glance at the Higher Secondary School Program. This topic was widely discussed and it was said that the Brothers are at present registered in the SFS Matric Hr. Sec. School, Vaniyambadi for their higher secondary education.
- Some plans were drawn for the ongoing formation of the priests. The programs will be animated for all our priests at different times, starting from September with the packages of one to five years of priests, six to ten years of priests and ten and above.
- In brief, Provincial Bursar presented the current financial status of the province.
With a grateful heart for each others’ presence and with a word of appreciation for the selfless and dedicated service of everyone, we concluded the meeting by praising the name of the Trinity.
“God calls you to make definitive choices, and He has a plan for each of you; to discover
that plan and to respond to your vocation is to move toward personal fulfillment.”
