The presence of Superior General Sr. Elvira Mattappally, Councillor General Sr. Mabel, Provincial Superiors Srs. Nirupa, Rupa, Kusum, Provincial Councillors Srs. Pushpa Jacob and Alice Antony added joy and made the celebration an enriching one. Sr. Sonia Kurien from our Tananzian mission and Sisters from neighbouring communities were present for the occasion. The relatives of Sr. Veronicah, the parishioners and the choir with their melodious singing and dancing made the celebration very alive and meaningful. We appreciate the Superior of our Kenyan Mission Sr. Mariella and Srs Beena Jose, Sweta, Shelly and Swati for organizing the liturgy and other functions of the day very well and making the day a memorable one. We wish all God’s blessings for our Sr. Veronicah that she may have the strength and grace to be faithful to her commitment till the end of her life.
