• Every Celebration of the Feast of Our Beloved Founder is yet another opportunity to deepen and strengthen our roots. This year the theme for the novenas revolved around "Pallotti`s love, appreciation and concern for Creation."  In today’s terms "Promoting the culture of Preservation and not the culture of destruction". Two novenas were conducted by the novices and one day UAC members at Casa Pallotti, Philosophy Institute of Pallottine Fathers, Goa. All our communities celebrated the feast of with a note of gratitude and at the same time seeking God’s blessings and graces to live the Charism and Missionary spirit enthusiastically.

• On January 22nd, the Deva Matha Community was blessed with the visit of Br. Berti Meyer, the Mission Secretary of the Sacred Heart Province of Germany. In spite of his limited time, he made time for us and deepened our family bond.

• The sisters and novices participated in a talk entitled "It is great to be a Catholic” at Pillar given by a convert, Mr. Steve Ray from Detroit, USA. The aim of the talk was to empower Catholics to be proud to be catholic and to boldly show it through one’s life, and to defend the Church. He portrayed the Catholic Church with the imagery of a big ship in the wide ocean and the other 40,000 denominations like rafts around the ship.

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
