Recollection before Lent

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lent. The community gathered yet once again before the lent for a spiritual renewal through monthly recollection on the day prior to Ash Wednesday. It was beautifully animated by Fr T.V. Thomas sdb. 

In his talk, he invited everybody to become mystics in the spirit, prophets of fraternity and servants of people of God. Fr P.C Thomas and Br Arullappa, from Navajeevan, Sabbavaram joined the community for the recollection. Before supper, we had an informal gathering to celebrate 25 years (Silver Jubilee) of priesthood of Fr T.V. Thomas.  A shawl and a book were given him as a gift. 

On Wednesday, the Holy Eucharist was beautifully animated by Fr Wilson. In his sermon, he summarized the message of the Holy Father for the Lent. The day was observed as a day of fasting and abstinence by all the members of the community.
