On June 30, 2019 one of our residents, Mr. Peter Francis Fernandez, 92 years old, celebrated silver Jubilee of his presence in our home. We wished him in the dining room which was well decorated with multi-color balloons and beautiful backdrop written ‘Happy silver Jubilee’. At 4 pm, he was escorted with an umbrella decorated with silver streamers by Little sisters, few residents, volunteers and employees. As the music played, everyone including the 92 years old Jubilarian danced to the rhythm of the music and entered the dining room where the audience welcomed him with a big round of applause.
Mother Superior Hilda Marie Antoinette felicitated the Jubilarian, thanked him for his presence in our home and for his long dedicated service to our home. She presented him with gifts. He cut the jubilee cake as the sisters sang the jubilee song. Sr.Agnes Claire de Marie adorned around his shoulder with "ponnadai" as a symbol of gratitude.Mrs. Rita Montero who is also in our Home for many years congratulated him with a bouquet of flowers. After the felicitation ceremony Mr.Peter Francis Fernandez thanked Mother and all the Little sisters. He also mentioned that he is earnestly praying for good and fervent vocations to our congregation.
Then, a famous singer Mr.Amar Sharma entertained everyone with Hindi songs and his son Ansh Sharma who is 5 yrs, joined him in singing. His friend Mr.Purushotham also sang old Hindi songs. The Jubilarian, his relatives and all our residents had an enjoyable evening. May God bless these singers who contributed to make this day a beautiful one.
