The Holy mass was held at 9:00 am to grace this event. Fr. Pius James D’ Souza, the Vice Provincial of the KG Province celebrated the holy mass along with the company of several Carmelite priests from the neighboring communities. Fr.

Brothers with their smooth voices filled the Shrine with wonderful church music. Photographs of respective batches along with the Community fathers were taken. The official stage function followed the Holy mass, wherein Dr. Ivan D’Souza, a diocesan priest from Mangalore was the keynote speaker. The Rector of Pushpashrama, Fr. Lawrence welcomed the gathering and led the guests of honor to light the lamp, thus officially inaugurating the academic year 2018-19. A total of 34 students were welcomed to the institute by Fr. Pius James who also spoke few words of wisdom. Dr. Ivan presented his doctoral thesis, ‘Parama Mukhya Vritti (Super primary meaning)’ which was gladly received by all who were present there. Fr.
