▪ Sr. Inacinha Fernandes participated in the Local Coordinators of meeting of ABVM Province.  This moment of Communion among the Coordinators was graced by the auspicious presence of Rev. Fr. Francis Sahaya Rajan, Vice Provincial and Rev. Fr. Ralph Besterwitch, Provincial Consultor. This one-day seminar began with a Power-Point presentation on the origin, growth and relevance of the Charism of the UAC. Rev. Fr. James Joseph, the Director of PAC, Nagpur, explained the meaning and the spirit of the Pallottine Charism. Concomitantly, 13 members from the three core-group communities of the Union chalked out a precise project for the celebration of the 50 years of the Canonization of St. Vincent Pallotti; the main focus was to have a regional UAC congress at the local level.

"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)
