Feast of St Vianney

On August 3, 2013, the community celebrated the feast of John Mary Vianney, the patron of priests, especially diocesan Priests.  The Holy Mass was animated and officiated by Fr Dara Balaswamy, the spiritual director.
It was more of a three day celebration with the community going out for a cycle picnic cum mountain climbing on the previous day and the solemn self-cooked meal (prepared by the Brothers themselves, while the cooks took a day off) the following day.

 The Offertory procession...

 Fr Maliekal, the Rector, venerating the decorated statue of St Vianney.
This relaxed celebration was made possible by the postponement of the new Priests day, which is normally coupled with the Vianney feast day celebrations.
