On October 16, 2010 the Vice-Provincial of the Salesian Province of Hyderabad, Fr Thathireddy Vijayabhaskar made his maiden official visit to the Seminary at Kondadaba. He arrived the previous night from Muniguda (Orissa). He presided over the Holy Eucharistic celebration that morning and exhorted the Brothers to live a deeper life in communion with the Lord. Citing the challenges that lay ahead in life, he recommended that each one strives towards becoming men of God capable of responding to the growing challenges of the times.
The community then sang a song of welcome for him after Mass (before b'fast). Having spent half a day with us he proceeded to make a visit of the Navajeevan Centres in Vizag. He assured that he would be back soon and then spend quality time with the community.
It would be good to note that Fr Thathireddy Bhaskar spent nearly 5 years of the formative and later years here at Kondadaba and served the community in various ways: as regent, professor and librarian. Thus the community was happy to welcome back one of its own members after a long duration. Having completed his doctorate in Philosophy and communication, he was elected as the sixth Vice-Provincial of the Salesian Province in April 2010.
