Visit of Bp Udumala Bala

Here are a few photos of the visit of Bp Udumula Bala, the Episcopal delegate of the APBC for the major Seminaries during his maiden visit to the Seminary on January 26, 2014.

He arrived on January 26, 2014 the Republic day in the evening, after having given his solemn blessing at the end of the 3rd day novena Mass in preparation for the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, Kondadaba. The Brothers put up a short programme welcoming him and Br Thomas Reddy, the former Provincial of the Gabriel Brothers who was accompanying the Bishop.

After supper he met the staff and the following morning presided over the Holy Eucharistic celebration for the Community.

During the sermon he exhorted the students to Grow into Christ and be men ready to take on the challenges of the world as effective minister of the Kingdom above.

After b'fast he addressed the three courses, separately and left before mid-day for Vizianagaram.
