The Golden Jubilee of Fr. Lawrence @
Life is one among the many gifts, grains of
sand very soon it starts to drift! But wait,
Just wait! Before it seems too late, rejoice
and sing and with joy celebrate! Fifty long
years may seem too long for most of them.
But if one asks Fr. Lawrence, he would
gladly say it all went in a jiffy. Having
celebrated the golden jubilee of his
religious profession clubbed with his
birthday, the community of Pushpashrama was
humbly obliged to celebrate the same with
great pomp and gaiety. But every celebration
is preceded with the celebration with the
Lord. Therefore on 23rd January, the whole
community along the faithful prayed for Fr.
Rector and implored on him the heavenly
blessings through the holy Eucharist. At
11:30 AM, the guests arrived from the
vicinity, convents and friaries to join in
the celebration of the Jubilee. Fr. Oswald
welcomed the gathering. After this, a small
prayer service was organised. Brothers put
up various acts such as dance, joke, skit,
musical piece, singing etc. Fr. Joe Tauro,
the close companion of Fr. Rector wished him
with sweet words. Also Fr. Lawrence spoke
out his heart regarding how he thanks God
for all the grace he has received as a
religious, priest and most of all as a
Carmelite. After the celebration, Fr.
Alphonse Britto prayed the grace over the
meals and sumptuous food was served for all!
Ad Multos annos Padre Laurencio!!!
