60 and 50 glorious years in the vineyard of the Lord, is what we as a province came together to celebrate on the 3rd of August 2019. As our dear Sr. Marietta Vettical celebrated the Diamond Jubilee of her religious profession and Sr. Flavia Mascarenhas celebrated the Golden Jubilee of her religious profession, we, the Sisters, family members, staff, cooperators, well-wishers, and friends joined them in thanking God for His fidelity to them during their religious journey. We gathered around the Eucharistic table to partake in the Thanksgiving Meal celebrated by Rev. Fr. V. V Abraham and the other concelebrants. The staff of Auxilium Caranzalem added to the solemnity of the celebration with their melodious choir.
We then proceeded to the Taliegao Community Hall for a short felicitation programme which would be followed by an agape meal. Our two jubilarians were given a thunderous and loving welcome as they danced to the tune of the music. Sr. Elizabeth Coelho raised the toast on this special occasion thanking both our dear sisters for their great contribution to our province during their past 60 and 50 years of service and dedication. Our provincial Sr. Ritha Dora felicitated our dear jubilarians on behalf of the entire province bestowing on them gifts and flowers.
The students of Auxilium Carnanzalem then put up an entertainment programme comprising of dance and song. The last item on the list was the jubilee song by the Sisters. Our Parish Priest, Fr. Cipriano D’Silva led us in prayer before meals. We all joined in the fellowship meal thanking God for all His blessings that never cease. May God bless our dear Sr. Marietta and Sr. Flavia, as they continue to toil joyfully and lovingly in His vineyard.
