On 26th July, 2019 the Residents feast was celebrated with solemn Eucharist presided over by our Bishop Most Rev. Dominic Savio. It began with entrance procession. Residents carried the Cross and the Candles,as we sang “Enter and rejoice ..”Bishop in his homily said about the traditional story of St. Ann and Joachim and their trust and unshakable confidence in God, the obedience of Mary to God’s will. He also requested all the elderly to spend more in time in prayer, and thus support the church and the entire nation with their powerful intercession.
After Mass, the Bishop was escorted to the dining room where residents welcomed him with loud round of applause and sang the feast day song. He presented each one a bottle of Horlicks which was well packed in a shining bag and wished each one a happy feast. After having breakfast with us, the Bishop took a leave.
At 4.30 pm the Associates Jeanne Jugan, about 10 of them came to wish our residents on their feast day. They conducted a few new indoor games which were very interesting and kept every one active and joyful. They were very inventive to make our elderly happy with their talents. May God bless and reward them.
