“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” Psalm 118 : 24
On 21st May, 7 of our novices from 5 different states namely, Bro. Dalee Balaswamy, Bro. Dama kendulna, Bro. Dorwin Yagova, Bro. Mariavimal, Bro. Michael Reagan, Bro. Oskar Minj, Bro. Rupesh Nand made their First Religious Commitment. Rev.Fr. Varghese OMI, the delegate of Provincial Superior presided over the Eucharist and Fr. Simeon OMI preached the homily on the theme, ‘To Be Rooted in Christ’. It was concluded with the subsequent Fellowship Agape. At this juncture, we gratefully remember and thank all the Oblates of Zette District and neighbourhood Religious priests, sisters and friends for their support and participation in the celebration and glorifying God for the gift of Oblate Religious Vocation to these young men and their gift of life to the OMI Congregation, to our Province and to our Mother Church at large.
With a deep sense of gratitude we also remember Fr. Maria Selvam OMI who Accompanied our novices spiritually during the 6 days of Annual Retreat from 9th to 15th May 2021.
