Summer months here in India are a vacation season especially for the school going children. Most of the parents make use of the vacation time for holidaying with their kids visiting their relatives, going for sight seeing trips to popular cities of tourist interest and historical locations. It is also a season for the Christians especially the Church leaders at the diocese or local parish and at various Religious congregations level to organize Summer Bible Classes, Vocation camps etc. Brothers of St. Gabriel in India too make use of this vacation to organize Vocation camps for a period of three or four days. This is usually organized by the Province Commission for Vocation promotion. The Province of Trichy conducts such residential camps regularly each year in which many young boys participate.
This year too the vocation promotion commission of Trichy Province headed by Bro. Joseph Thomas organized it from 5 - 7 June 2022 in our Montfort Juniorate campus, Palakurichy. Altogether 27 boys attended the camp with lots of enthusiasm and interest. The various activities and input sessions on different topics were handled by our Bros. John Xavier, Packiaraj, Stevans and Chandru. Needless to refer to the involvement of Bro. Irudayam, the Provincial Superior and Bro. George Fernandez the convener of Formation Commission of the Province. Suitable candidates were selected after personal interview and close observations and understanding of the participants. The selected candidates will report to our Juniorate to continue their schooling from June/July. The members of the Vocation Promotion Commission certainly deserve our applause for their hard work and commitment. Congratulations to you dear Brothers.
