Cuddalore – The GLM members in Cuddalore gathered at Don Guanella Boys Home for their monthly meeting. The meeting began with Eucharistic adoration conducted by Fr. Visuwasam, and a special prayer for the whole congregation and all of the fathers and GLM members was offered. After a short orientation by Fr. Visuwasam, an open sharing took place. The central thread of this sharing was meant to strengthen the local GLM and its charitable activities. Fr. Kanikkairaj shared that the GLM members should feel at home and become ready-made servants of charity to join in the works of charity initiated by the congregation. They must participate with all of their skills, be they spiritual, material or charismatic. The meeting ended with a final prayer.
E. Providence – May was a month full of spiritual growth for the students at Sacred Heart School. The second graders received their First Holy Communion and were featured in their Communion garments at the May Crowning. Mrs. Chalmers even brought the first graders to Adoration where they were all so excited to recite the Rosary in its entirety. Thank you Mary for guiding the children through the month dedicated to your honor.
Cuddalore – An age old dream was realized when the alumni of St. Joseph’s Seminary (Ex-Seminarians) gathered at the Seminary to renew and strengthen their bonds with the Guanellian Congregation. The participants expressed their joy for inviting them and keeping the Guanellian spirit alive in them. The day began with Eucharistic Adoration led by Fr. Visuvasam. A session followed in which Fr. John Paul Britto explained the purpose of the gathering and gave a presentation of all the Guanellian mission activities in India. By popular opinion, the Alumni decided to start a movement; giving it the title Guanellian Alumni Association of India (GAAI).
