Inauguration Eucharist and Gathering

On 3rd  July 2017 , the inaugural Eucharistic celebration and orientation programme of JDV women’s forum commenced at PG block around 10 a.m. Fr. Selva Rathinam, the President of JDV celebrated the Holy Eucharist and  enlightened us with a thought-provoking homily from  the life of St. Thomas the Apostle of India whose feast  was  celebrated. The theme of this year is “YOUNG HEARTS DISCERNING IN FAITH”. In his homily Fr. Selva stressed on three important aspects firstly Faith  which calls for the relationship with others and God, secondly Gift how  we make use of the gifts given by God and become fruitful and thirdly Living  

After some refreshments, we gathered in the PG hall. Fr. Stephen Jayard, the animator of the women’s forum, addressed us with the theme “ Time management”. The preciousness of female presence and the amazing strength, which she owns, takes us beyond the present social practices. It was a chance to bring in us awareness that male and female are not opposite but complimentary to work hand in hand for a better world. The yearly programme was presented by Sr. Maureen Peiris and we had a meaningful sharing for the coming year.
