The new Provincial Council, Rev. Fr. Camilo Simoes as Provincial, Fr. Francis Sahaya Rajan as Vice Provincial, Fr Ralph Besterwitch, Fr. Yadala Kishore Babu and Fr. Gilbert Mascarenhas as council members, took an oath of office on the 6th of January 2011, during the concelebrated Holy Mass on the occasion of the Feast of Epiphany of our Lord at the provincialate chapel. In his homily the new provincial Rev. Fr. Camilo Simoes emphasized on the need of Christ as the light and the need for the star that guided the three Magies to the manger. And so too in our life Christ’s light is very important to achieve any heights. At the outset of the Eucharist Rev. Fr. Provincial Camilo Simoes acknowledged the new responsibility as God’s gift and promised to carry out his responsibility faithfully with the help of God and the cooperation of every member of ABVM Province. The dedicated service of the outgoing provincial council was acknowledged and appreciated.
