Fr P. Arul Das SDB - First Mass
On the 24th of June, the feast of John the Baptist, the community Mass was presided over by Fr Pitchaimuthu Arul Das SDB... this being his first Mass here at St John's Kondadaba after his ordination in the month of December 2010. Fr Arul Das served here as the regent in the year 2004-2005. During the homily he exhorted the students to become aware of the spiritual mission awaiting us as per God's plan. To fulfill this, he proposed that each one ought to do the necessary preparation, be humble and thus be the voice to the voiceless. After communion he thanked the staff members (each of whom was a formator of his in his early stages of formation) and the Regent, Br Satish for their invitation and hospitality. After Mass, which was animated by the Suvartha Sunadam and Vidya Jyothi groups, Fr Arul was felicitated with a small gift in the dining hall. He was also kind enough to share his expertise on a few personality development traits, especially time management, with the students during the fourth hour of the day. Presently Fr Arul is the assistant Parish Priest and administrator at Bosco Ashram, Ponnur (Guntur district). He completed his theology at KJC, Bangalore.
