Pope's Day

On June 29, 2011 the Community celebrated the feast Peter and Paul in a solemn manner. Beginning with a conference on the Papacy by Fr Francis Pasupuleti, the Parish Priest of Yelamanchili, the day was marked by several interesting features. The hour long conference on the Papacy offered the community rich insights in the history and meaning of this great and divine office of service and honour. Later Fr Francis also presided over the Holy Eucharistic celebration, which was well prepared by the Suvartha Sunadam and Vidya Jyothi groups. Of course, special prayers were offered for Pope Benedict XVI. The chapel too was artistically decorated for the occasion.

After a sumptuous lunch the Brothers had their weekly shopping time till tea time. After tea, the Youth Alive group planned and organised a lightning tournament for the community. Each growth group got to play all the other groups either in the football field, or the volleyball court or the basketball court. Mother Teresa and Pratyasa emerged as the teams with the most number of points and victories. The day concluded with the screening of the movie about the life of St Paul.
