“Ours is a call… to seek and initiate ever new and creative ways to be effective missionaries for the sake of God’s kingdom in season and out of season.” (MSFS Const. Prologue)
A formal invitation was sent out to all our confreres to be part of the Founder’s Day celebrations arranged in our Provincialate on 30th September, 2015. In response to the invitation, a number of our confreres turned up and participated in the Holy Eucharist celebrated at 6.15 p.m. in honour of our beloved Founder. In order to make the celebration more meaningful, a very special invitation was given to the Congregation of the Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod (SCC), the Women Congregation founded by our Beloved Founder himself to be part of our celebration and to pay homage to him together with us, their loving brothers.
It was really a very grand celebration as many of our Confreres, around fifty of our S.F.S. Minor Seminarians, about fifty five Sisters of SCC together with their Provincial Superior, Rev. Sr. Rosy Antony, and a number of Priests and Religious took part in the Holy Eucharist and the fellowship meal.
Thanks to Rev. Fr. Provincial and the Provincialate community, who, along with our S.F.S. Minor Seminary Students, did all the necessary arrangements to have a grace-filled celebration and Fr. A. Jayaseelan and his troupe for their dance performance before and after the Holy Eucharist.
Many thanks to Rev. Sr. Rosy Antony and her Sisters for making it a point to be present for the celebration, very beautifully decorating the Altar and the house, carefully looking into the minute details of the Liturgy and fantastically organizing the Choir.
