REGIONAL GATHERING AT XELLIM
Friars from five communities of our Province, namely: Xellim, Mapusa,
Margao, Matadakeri and Londa, converged at Divine Springs, Xellim, on
the 28th of March 2023 for the last regional gathering of this
triennium. The first half was a Lenten recollection preached by Fr.
Estevão Rodrigues OFM Cap. The Eucharist that followed, was presided
over by the newly ordained priest, Fr. Rakesh Parmar, while Fr. Jeevan
Tauro broke the Word of God. After a dainty meal, around one and a half
hours were spent in fellowship and fraternal sharing.
15 friars were present and happy to spend this time together. Thanks to
the host community. Though Fr. Alvito Fernandes was away due to prior
commitments, he had made all arrangements along with the other members
of his community. Long live our Carmelite fraternity!
