Farewell to Fr Joy Francis
“My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to complete his work” (Jn 4:34).


Jesus who said these words highlighting his mission still helps us to draw inspiration to preach the good news to lands near and far. Heeding to this call, with utmost obedience just like his master Jesus, Fr. Joy Francis has prepared himself to touch the earth of Nagpur, Maharashtra and give witness of Christ to the people there.

As he was serving in the community of Pushpashrama, the community felt apt to bid him adieu with a grand farewell. He worked marvels in Pushpashrama by renovating the chapel, repairing the sound systems, installing TV screens in the shrine to facilitate easy worship and so on. His cheerful spirit and helping nature was truly inspiring and influencing. Therefore thanking him for his very presence in Pushpashrama and wishing him success in the new mission land, the community organised a cultural programme which included a colourful display of talents of brothers. Fr. Superior and Br. Jesvin shared the happy moments we shared with Fr. Joy. Fr. Joy also happily thanked the community for their support and encouragement.

Though everyone were distressed sensing the loss of a gem in our community, yet everyone thanked God in their hearts for calling Fr. Joy to be a Carmelite MISSIONARY and prayed for his good health and success in his ministry.
