News From the Region of India
The 9th Regional Assembly 2015 was commenced at St. Vincents Retreat Centre, Gopalpur-on-Sea. The Assembly spanned on 16 through 18 of June. All the professed brothers in the Region, with the exception of Fr. Subal Francis, who is working in the wider Province in our Mission in Tonga, were present. However, their wishes and goodwill came pouring in through e-mails and phone calls.
The cool and conducive weather set our minds to focus on the Ten-Year Strategic Plan. This Ten Year Strategic Plan is laid out to strengthen our Socio-Pastoral Mission, Vocation and Initial Formation, Finance and Ongoing Formation of the brothers. We came up with some concrete and feasible goals and objectives to be fulfilled by 2025, when the Region would be celebrating her Golden Jubilee of the presence of the Region.
Bro. Richard Kupo, ss.cc., a member of the Provincial Council of the United States Province, represented the Provincial Government. His guiding presence helped us to fall on track on the fronts. The Assembly ended with an encouraging note from Bro. Richard who wished all very best for the efforts being made and implored Gods blessing that our plan may come to fruition in due time.
