On 5th August 2014, the community of Auxilium Dum Dum celebrated the Foundation Day, the Golden jubilee of Sr. Alice Olikal and the Silver jubilee of Sr. Teresa Karakkal. Sisters from the Kolkata zone communities, candidates and the neighbourhood religious communities joined for the celebration. This memorable day, the solemn Holy Eucharist was presided over by Rev. Fr Hermil D’Souza, the parish priest and con-celebrated by Rev. Fr. Peter. During the homily Fr. Hermil congratulated the sisters and said it is the celebration of God’s fidelity towards us and our response to His faithful love that we celebrate. He concluded the homily by saying, “Before you expire you inspire, in life position is not important but disposition matters and before being samples give examples”. The entire liturgy was very meaningfully animated by the sisters.
After the Eucharistic celebration the jubilerians were felicitated with songs, gifts and gestures of love. The presence and the felicitation of the candidates added joy to the celebration. It was followed by a delicious and sumptuous lunch. Congratulations dear Sr. Alice Olikal and Sr. Teresa Karakkal. May God bless you and accompany you always.
Sr. Dominica J. Thapa
