Centennial Celebration

Kumbakonam – It was a great joy for Our Lady of Divine Providence Parish, Bethany Home, DSMP – St. Luigi Illam, Guanella Nagar and St. Francis de Sales, Kuttalam to celebrate the Centennial of St. Luigi Guanella and the Year of Consecrated Life. Msgr. A. Packiasamy, Vicar General, celebrated Holy Mass. After the gospel all the priests and religious came forward to recite the prayer of commitment and receive a blessing from the Vicar General. Then Fr. Soosai Rathinam, SdC, Provincial Superior preached the homily, reflecting on God’s love shared by Fr. Guanella and his famous quotes, “it is God who does and Holiness will save the world.” After Mass the honored guests were given gifts by the DSMP sisters. Msgr. A. Packiasamy gave prizes to the winners of the Bible Quiz. Fr. Soosai Rathinam gave prizes to those who wrote an essay about St. Guanella. Sr. Victoria William DSMP, Indian Delegate, gave gifts to the tuition children. Then Fr. John Bosco, Superior and Parish Priest, gave thanks to everyone who made the event meaningful especially Fr. Vincent, Bro. Kulandai, Regent, Srs. Cristy and Siron. As the Founder said, “Give Bread and the Lord,” we shared the festive lunch with all the parishioners and the guests. St. Guanella continues to intercede for his spiritual children to carry on the charitable missions through their words and deeds.
