MUMBAI JUNE 1, 2010:On the feast of the Visitation of Our Lady, Fr. Manuel, Fr. Santarita, Fr. Jeffery, Fr. James Tuscano, Fr. Cletus and Fr. Savio D’Souza gathered together at the Salesian Training Institute to commemorate twenty-five great years of living the Salesian call to holiness.
With grateful hearts the jubilarians said, “God Tussi Great Ho!” as they echoed sentiments of thankfulness and praise to the Lord for choosing them to be humble instruments through which HE would work wonders in the lives of all to whom they would be Sent In Love. The jubilarians stated that the Lord had worked marvels in their lives. It was through Him alone that they could reach out to touch and transform the lives of many. They all believed that through these twenty-five years they had many ups and downs but the love that they received from their superiors, companions and friends encouraged them to persevere and be faithful to their vocation. They called the gathering to put their trust in Jesus and to bank on His love, for without Him they would be nothing.
After the Eucharist, a short family circle was staged. A sumptous meal provided by the STI community enhanced the celebrations.
