The Community gathered in prayer on the first day of the new academic year 2011-2012 through a day of monthly recollection on June 13, 2011. To animate the community, Mr Claudius Rosario and his wife Mrs Maria, parishners of Buchirajpalem Parish were present with us for the day. Besides the community proper, the 9 OCDs who for part of the college this year onwards too were present in their habit. It was a sight to see the 9 habits, 2 cassock amidst the Diocesan Brothers.
Beginning with a long session of praise and worship, the two animators helped the community seek the Lord's presence and savour it prior to launching out into the various hectic activities of the year. They also animated the adoration in the evening. Frs Peter Sebastian, Fr Anithottam, Fr Prasad and Fr Ratnakar were gracious and generous enough to spare their time for facilitating the sacrament of reconciliation.
Fr Peter Sebastian, the Parish Priest of Buchirajpalem, presided over the Holy Eucharistic celebration. The recollection concluded with the celebration of the Holy Mass at 6.30 pm.
