Beautiful Moments in Harayana and Himachal Pradesh with our Friars and their Ministry

 This is a Carmalite school which is one of the best schools in Lanhan town sought after by the people. The Capuchins came earlier than the sisters but unfortunately were not allowed by the Capuchin authority to start a school as it was against our charism. Today the capuchins have nothing but 6 catholic families and serving the sisters.

 Our Chapel which is used only on Sunday as the friars have to go to the chapel of the sisters to celebrate Mass.

 The school were our friars were willing to offer their services to teach to earn their livelihood but the sisters refused.....
 These are poor women who have nothing to count on...so br. angelo started a free tailoring institute where about 20 women come everyday. The tutor is paid by the custoy. I met and spoke to them about family values and hard work. It was about an half an hour...i spoke to them in Hindi. Through stories and anecdote i communicated that Life is worth living if God is present and if He is the priority of life.

 They were so happy to listen to a friar



 Br. Nixon Fernandes who is working in diocesan parish. He is an ex-capuchin and joined the diocese as a lay collaborator

 Br. Crispin, the rector of the minor seminary....standing on 4 acres of land purchased by the custody....He has worked hard and gone through a lot of trouble as the villagers troubled him for various reasons....now all problems solved and the compound wall is getting ready...


 Oh, it wonderful to be here......

 The owner of the land who sold it to the Capuchins....he is a sikh man and very happy man....we chatted with him for a long time.....
