Postulants, India

Two new postulants, Josephine and Theresa, entered our Community in Mysore on 15th July 2019, having completed their, ‘come and see’ phase.

They were joined by Sathya and Sujatha on 18th November.

The word ‘postulant’ is from the Latin ‘postulare’ meaning ‘to ask’.  For some time, the enquirers have come to experience life in the community.   Their progression to Postulancy means they are now asking to join.  This stage lasts for 6 to 12 months.

Please pray for our postulants that the Lord will be their guide as they begin this new step of discernment in Franciscan vocation.

‘So, under the Lord’s guidance, let them set out on a life of penance, knowing that we are all obliged to constant conversion of heart.’ (TOR Rule, Ch 2, n.6).

The Friendship Singers

The next summer concert performed by The Friendship Singers will be on 29th June 2020 at 7.30pm in St. Joseph’s Convent Chapel. All are welcome. Admission is free, a retiring collection will be taken on the night for a charitable cause. If you can come, we look forward to seeing you there!

The Friendship Singers Christmas concert in St. Joseph’s Convent Chapel on 9th December 2019 was well attended. A retiring collection in aid of the Thejomaya De-Addiction Centre in Mysore, India, together with later donations, raised a total of £500.00. We are grateful to the choir for giving their time and talents and to all who contributed to the event.
