Just as the apostle Matthew was called while
at work so also Regan received the call of
Jesus while he was working as a financial
consultant. After 3 years of service with
the poor and suffering he was introduced to
the order of Carmel. He joined the Discalced
Carmelite Order in July 2007 and made his
first profession on 28th September 2008.
Filled with zeal and enthusiasm for the
missions he reached the shore of Tanzania,
Africa on 9th September 2009 with the sole
purpose of evangelizing and serving the
poor. After completing his philosophy and
two years of theology he returned to India
and completed his theological studies at St.
Joseph Seminary, Mangaluru. He made his
solemn profession on 26th May 2017. He was

Do continue to pray for him that he may be a
true shepherd unto the heart of Jesus.
