Jubilarians’ Evening at Vinayalaya, 27th Nov 2022
On Saturday the 27th of November, our Risen Lord Chapel at Vinayalaya almost mirrored the aula of a General Congregation. Under Fr Arun Lobo’s spiritual guidance, the Jesuit battalion of seniors and juniors stormed the heavens as their prayers raised their jubilarian companions like incense to the altar of God. This was followed by a crash course on discernment of spirits by Fr Joaquim Tellis (Minister) at the bar counter. Fr Learoy Rodrigues played the ringmaster at this ceremony (as is his custom). Br Owen Caston and Sch Ambrose D'Souza were the brand ambassadors of Jesuit MAGIS with their golden words and enchanting melodies to which our juniors grooved. Fr Anil Pereira (Provincial) read out an extract from Fr General’s letter appreciating our Jubilarians (Fr Bosco D’Souza and Fr Joel Mascarenhas), and Fr Bosco D’Souza shared his sentiments which left everyone speechless. Million-dollar smiles flashed across the refectory amidst thundering applause as Fr Provincial and Fr Superior felicitated these legends. Lastly the aroma of delicious delicacies tickled the taste buds of one and all. We are deeply grateful to God for the gift of our Jubilarians!
