FR. PROVINCIALíS VISIT & LOWER MAINLAND CEREMONIES
WESTERN CANADA OCDS OF THE KARNATAKA-GOA PROVINCE

Double Celebration! Double Happiness! The three Lower Mainland Communities had much reason to rejoice on September 22, 2018. The rain and fall weather did not dampen their spirits as they gathered at St. Edmundís Church, North Vancouver, BC. Provincial Father Charles Serrao made his annual visit to the Canada Region at a most opportune time to coincide with the Ceremonies of the 2018 candidates. The Eucharistic Celebration was presided by Fr. Charles Serrao and concelebrated by Regional Superior Fr. Jerald DíSouza, Provincial Delegate Fr. Steny Mascarenhas and Assistant Pastor of St. Edmundís Parish, Fr. Vincent DíSouza. It was a bonanza year for the Region with the investiture of six aspirants, the first profession of nine candidates and the vows of one candidate.

The President of the Regional Council and the Officers of the Communities met briefly with Fr. Charles to present their reports. Fr. Charles expressed his appreciation for the support given to the OCDS Communities and the Province by the OCDS in Western Canada.

The meeting was concluded and everyone joined in with the community members, celebrants, their family and friends for a light lunch and refreshments. Fr. Charles gave a brief summary on the charitable work being carried out by the Order in India and the Mission and on the tremendous growth of the OCDS in India and universally.
