▪ Every year on September 5th Teachers’ Day is celebrated. It is the day when shishya (the student) remembers his guru (teacher) and pays homage and respect to him or her. In the Infant Jesus English Medium School in Manjeshwar, where Head Mistress, Sr. Angela Swamy and two other Sisters are working, the students honored them with lighted candles and invoked God’s blessings upon them. Each teacher was also called and offered a bouquet of flowers and also some prizes.
▪ The Sisters from Nazareth Convent in Mariammalkulam participated with immense joy in the celebration of the Parish Feast of Our Lady of Good Health on September 8th at Vadipatti. The church was packed with priests, sisters and other people, including members from other denominations and religions. With its melodious singing, the choir enhanced the beauty of the liturgy. The huge crowd walked in a procession along the chariot of Blessed Mother in the streets of Vadipatti reciting the rosary and other prayers. The highlight of the feast was the solemn blessing after the procession. Then the celebration ended with a sumptuous meal cooked by parish members.
