Province Day Celebrations

 

On 17th September 2012 we have celebrated our Province day. All the Friars and brothers are gathered at St Antony's Friary, Tillery, Kollam. The celebrations began with sports items and it was inaguarated by Fr. Irvin, the Vicar Provincial. There were competitions like Basket Ball, Badminton and other games. After a long time it was the team of fathers who won the basket ball game and the man of the match was Fr. Dominic Pathiyala. We have honored him as the sportive man of the province. Bro. Anish Joseph won the applauds of Best player prize. After the competitions there was a Festal Mass presided by  the Vicar Provincial and other Definitors. Soon after that there was a cultural programme presented by our own brothers. During the programme the Province has honored Fr. Manuel Mendez for his simple life and dedication to the Secular Franciscan Order. In short we had a nice fraternal gathering.
