PJS THANKS THE PRESIDENT



On Sunday, 20 May 2018, the Solemnity of Pentecost, Fr. Jose Vadassery handed over the office of the Provincial of the Patna Jesuit Province to Fr. Donald J Miranda during the Solemn Eucharist celebrated at St. Xavier’s, Patna at 6.00 p.m. in the presence of nearly 100 Patna Jesuits. In his introduction, Fr. Jose welcomed the new provincial and thanked God and the Patna Jesuits for their support and cooperation. After the homily, Fr. Selvin Xavier, the Socius, read out the decree of appointment from Fr. General. Fr. Jose passed on the shawl of the main celebrant to Fr. Donald as a symbolic handing over of
the office of the Provincial after which the
congregation sang a hymn to the Holy Spirit
invoking the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on
the new provincial and the province. Fr.
Donald in his address thanked Fr. Jose for
his committed leadership to the Province.
The choir was led by the Patna scholastics
under the guidance of Fr. Raymond Cheru-
bim. Thanks to the Rector and Administra-
tor of St. Xavier’s Community for all the ar-
rangements and agape. Thanks to the
Archbishop William D’ Souza, S.J. for his gracious presence and blessings! Thank you Fr. Jose, as you move on to a much deserved break to relax, get refreshed and renewed and to return.
