▪ Guided by the UAC formator in India, Fr. Vijay Thomas and six of the eight candidates for UAC membership spent a day at the Sisters' Deva Matha Convent in Goa on Oct 3rd. Fr. Vijay deepened the understanding of the prayer of St. Vincent Pallotti to Mary, Queen of Apostles and encouraged the participants to say this prayer at the beginning of their study circle gatherings. With a power point presentation they also were introduced to the Statutes of the UAC. Sr. Lillian Kaniampuram, UAC coordinator in our Congregation, expressed words of gratitude to Father. Sr. Inacinha Fernandes, provincial councilor, also took part in this meeting.

▪ On the next day, the Pallottine Fathers, Sisters and Ms. Crispina from the Khristsevikas gathered in the Fathers’ house, Casa Pallotti, where Fr. Nelson Rodrigues, Goa coordinator animated the participants to strengthen the development of the UAC personally and as communities. Each one shared their understanding of the UAC and expressed the wish to continue in cooperation. It was decided to translate the UAC Formation Book into Konkani.

"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)
