Mysore – Preethiya Sevakaru was busy and happily preparing to welcome Fr. Alfonso Crippa, Superior General. Fr. Crippa, Fr. Provincial Soosai and Fr. Gnanaraj, the Superior of GPN community arrived on March 3rd with a very solemn welcome. They had a good time meeting the Confreres and brothers. They were taken to see the newly purchased land and were pleased. A solemn Mass was celebrated by Fr. Crippa and the visit ended with a solemn dinner.
Nearly 40 children of the Don Guanella Evening School went on a picnic with the brothers and visited Chamundi Hills, Tipu Sultan Palace and Sangam Boat House. They all expressed their joy in sharing their meals, dances, songs and games.
“The harvest is plenty but the laborers are very few,” the words of our Lord Jesus took Fr. Leo Joseph and Bro. Johnson fishing for vocations in the diocese of Bellary 500 kms from Mysore. It was the first time the Priest and the people heard about the Servants of Charity. Some young students showed an interest in our seminary. The vocation drive was useful in gaining insight about the people.
