Pushpashrama community privileged to honour its patroness St Therese of Child Jesus on the 1st of October 2016. It was an auspicious day to celebrate and rejoice with our patroness for the manifold blessings that Pushpashrama received through the intercession of St Therese.

The festal mass was presided over by Rev Fr Vincent Fernandes, the rector of Minor Seminary, Mysore diocese at 11-15am along with other 16 concelebrants from the neighboring communities. The religious sisters, Dr Kanthraj and Family and Mr Joychen and family were the privileged guests of honour who joined the celebration to honour the patroness. Rev Fr Vincent in his homily highlighted the little way and the spiritual childhood of St Therese and invited all to walk in the footsteps of St Therese in following the Lord. The philosophy brothers gave a facelift to the celebration through their melodious singing and the creative liturgy. Rev Fr Alfred Menezes, the rector of Pushpashrama Philosophy College proposed the vote of thanks and words of appreciation for all the invites and the close associates of Pushpashrama. After the Eucharistic celebration all the participants assembled at the Philosophy College auditorium, where the brothers invoked the assistance of Jesus through a harmonious prayer song. Rev Fr Paul D’ Souza implored the blessings upon the meal, after which all the friends of Pushpashrama shared the fellowship meal which was prepared under the leadership of Fr Joseph Pinto. Thus the feast day of the patroness became an opportunity to thank the Lord and at the same time to share the joy and deepen the friendship with the close associates of Pushpashrama.
