Priests and Religious share stories
“It was the first time that all priests and sisters working in the diocese came together,” said Sister Blessy James, a participant of the February 27 program.
According to the Missionary Sisters of Mary Immaculate, the meeting helped the Church workers to get to know each other and become enriched by their sharing.
Father Benny Mundanattu, a priest participant, found the program like a family get-together. “It was a great time to reiterate our dedication to work together for the kingdom of God,” he said.
Four bishops, including three from the diocese, attended the program at the Bathania Retreat Centre, Pullurampara.
Missioners working overseas and in other dioceses also attended.
Retired Archbishop Jacob Thoomkuzhy of Trichur, who led the Mass with 300 priests, asked the participants to witness their faith through words and deeds.
