OCDS Profession at Mira Road
November 8th is a day to be written in the
Golden letters in the history of St. Joseph’s
Church Mira Road and especially in the books of
OCDS. We were fortunate to have Very Rev. Fr.
Alzinir Xavier Dabastiani, Delegate General for
OCDS amidst us. He was on fraternal visit but by
God’s grace it became memorable because 7 of our
OCDS members made their definitive promises and
5 of them made temporal promises. The solemn
Eucharistic mass was presided over by Very Rev.
Fr. Charles Serrao, the Provincial Superior who
also delivered a very thought provoking homily
whereas Delegate General received the promises.
After the Eucharistic Celebration OCDS members
gathered together around the Major Superiors to
be enlightened by them. During this time three
members formally entered the formation in OCDS
by the rite of induction. The day concluded with
sumptuous dinner cooked and served by the OCDS
