Pastoral Visitation – St Fidelis Friary, Monte Mariano – Novitiate, Farangipet.
It’s a place where the Young Capuchins are formed. A place which confronts you, challenges you and makes you leave the comfort zone and moves you to model your affections after those of Christ. The novitiate community of St Fidelis friary- Monte Mariano, Farangipet, the cradle of Capuchins in south India, had a grace-filled event of the Pastoral Visitation, by Rev. Fr John Alwyn Dias, the Provincial Minister from 3-5 August 2023. The Guardian Br. Manohar Dsouza along with the community members and the novices extended a warm welcome to the Provincial Minster and also to the provincial secretary, Br Joywin Dias. The Pastoral Visitation began with an introductory talk. The following day being the feast of St. John Marie Vianney, Provincial offered the Holy Eucharist and preached a thoughtful homily on being devout religious, caring pastors and transforming leaders. Thereafter he met the friars personally and, in the evening, he also addressed the novice brothers, encouraging them to move forward with enthusiasm. The following day after the Holy Eucharist the entire community visited the cemetery prayed and paid tribute to the friars gone before us. In the evening there was a community dialogue. The Pastoral Visitation was concluded with the evening prayer and benediction.
