To Clergy and Religious of Gandhinagar Archdiocese

Dear Sisters, Brothers, Fathers,

This is a reminder of our coming together on the occasion of theChrism Mass on Saturday 28th March at the Cathedral, Sector 8, Gandhinagar. Kindly arrive at 3.30pm at St. Xavier’s School for refreshments. From 4.00pm to 5.30pm Fr. Vinayak Jadav will lead our discussion and reflection on the Challenges of Consecrated Life. After a short break, the Chrism Mass will begin at the Cathedral at 6.00pm. Dinner will be served after Holy Mass and the Blessing of the Holy Oils.

Though all are invited and expected to join in this celebration, we need to know the number of members who will attend from each parish/religious community. Please inform Fr. Siby Mathew on his mobile or sms to his number : 9427430360; or to Fr. Salvadore : 9825883879. Thanks for this attention.

In my letter of 18th March on Contributions, at the start of the second page, I have requested that “in the measure possible a contribution be sent for the African missions”. I appeal to communities of priests and religious to send a contribution from their current year community accounts for the African missions. Your generous contribution should be sent to Fr. Victor Pais  (cheques in favour of ARCHDIOCESE OF GANDHINAGAR)  preferably before 31st March. In the coming financial year 2015-16, the contribution may be made as scheduled (in December). Your generosity is appreciated.

United in prayer,


Stanislaus Fernandes,sj

Archbishop of Gandhinagar
