Honoring Kalam

Sivagangai - anjali 1Sivagangai  РTo honor the former president of India, Dr. APJ Abdulkalam, St. Guanella Anbagam School joined the Yesuvanam community on August 1st. The parish priest of Susaiyappar Pattinam and benefactor Mr. Justin were also invited to this anjali, or divine offering. Everyone held candles as a form of anjali to the former president and his valuable guidance to Indian society. To pay homage to him, five minutes of silence was observed and prayers were offered that his soul may rest in peace. Fr. Superior gave a beautiful message about Dr. APJ Abdulkalam. Each person put a flower before his photo and honored him. His absence was deeply felt because he was so inspirational and encouraging, he motivated the children to be firm in their goals for the future.
