Province of St. Francis Xavier - India
1st – 10th February 2018
“To Search for real Joy in Jesus Expressed in the Acts of Mercy”
We are glad to communicate to you that the XI Provincial Chapter of St. Francis Xavier India, began on 1st February 2018 with the Votive Mass to the Holy Spirit presided by Rev. Fr. George Vettikuzhyil OCD. In his message he exhorted the participants to seek for the Fruits of the Holy Spirit i.e Love, Peace and Joy than the usual way of seeking for the Gifts.
On this auspicious occasion the Delegates of the Chapter gathered in front of the chapter hall with the lighted Candle. The liturgist of the day animated the members to enter the chapter hall. Sr. Vilma D’silva led the procession holding Bible which is the Inspirational source to live our life radically for the sake of the Kingdom, followed by Sr. Marykutty Thomas carrying the Frame of Fr. Founder as a foundational spring to live Carmelite Vocation with Mysticism and Prophecy and Sr. Shiny Thomas taking the Constitution a motivating force to live the norms of our Congregation.
Provincial Superior welcomed the delegates to the chapter and declared the Chapter Opened. The letter of Sr. General Cecilia Andres was read and her message; to find real Joy in Jesus. The procedure of the chapter began with reading of the reports of province and continued with the reports of communities.
We seek your prayerful support.
