Chennai – In view of celebrating the centenary of the death of our Founder, St. Guanella, Don Guanella Major Seminary hosted a Basketball tournament September 17-18th. The prime reason was to make known his charism and foster relationships with the neighboring communities during this year dedicated to the Bond of Charity. Eight teams participated; including Sacred Heart Seminary, Salesian Theologate (Kavarapettai), MMI Theologate, CMI Fathers, Blessed Sacrament Fathers, Holy Spirit Fathers, FOD and Guanellians. The opening ceremony began with prayer and song to St. Guanella in the presence of Fr. Samson, local superior, and the community. At the end, Guanellians met the MMI Theologate in the final and won the trophy. The community dedicated the trophy to all Guanellians worldwide (Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, Benefactors, GLM and Beneficiaries) who are eagerly preparing themselves to celebrate this great event. Mr. Seenu, the local ward member, Fr. M. I Raja (Blessed Sacrament) and Fr. Julian from Kumbakonam diocese were the invitees for the closing ceremony, and they encouraged the players to continue the good relationship and distributed the prizes and cup to the winners.
