February 12, 2020 was the day chosen to celebrate the 25 years of presence of Ms. G. Jebamalai at our home. Since she had no family members she had the joy of having Mother Provincial for her memorable day. After the morning’s thanksgiving Eucharist the Jubilarian was felicitated at the corridor and she distributed sweets for all.
At 3.30 pm on the same day, we gathered in the auditorium to celebrate the birthday party of the Residents. Then the Jubilarian was taken to the stage which had a beautiful backdrop prepared for the occasion. After the traditional Ponnadai , garland and bouquet, the Jubilarian cut the cake. Ms. Viola Fernando said a few words on her life for which she responded with spontaneous words of thanks. The students of St. Xavier’s boys Higher Secondary School took the stage and performed a colorful cultural program , which was fitting for the day.
