November 3, 2014, the concluding day of the XVI Provincial Chapter of the India-Nigeria-Great Britain-Ireland Province began with a Visit to the Blessed Sacrament guided by Fr Devasia Puthiyaparambil. He led us through the Truth-Way-Life method of praying.
The day's proceedings began with a Bhajan chanted by Fr Richard Amaldas. Then the actuaries read the report of the previous day and it was passed with a few amendments. This was followed by a detailed discussion on the proposals made by the Chapter members for the Xth General Chapter. At the end of the session the Secretary and the Moderator of the Chapter thanked the assembly for the smooth conduct of the Chapter.
At the end of the Eucharist, Fr Provincial thanks and congratulated the assembly for the smooth functioning and successful completion of the Chapter. He also thanked everyone, especially the Chapter Secretary, the Moderator, the Actuaries, the Drafting Committee, the Scrutineers, the Superior and community of Pune, the Rector and community JDV PG Block and all others who helped to make the XVI Provincial Chapter a huge moment of blessing for our Province. As a special gesture, Fr Provincial honoured the diamond jubilarian who is also the eldest member of the Chapter, Br Angelo Pullokaran, for his vibrant presence and immense contributions.
After this, the Provincial Superior declared the XVI Provincial Chapter of India-Nigeria-Great Britain-Ireland Province closed.
