Amalashram, Thopramkudy

 Lijo and Thomas full of smiles....they are the young friars involved in many ministries...they go round about to preach and promote vocations....Lijo has PG in English and waiting for the results and would research for a job....

 This is a hilly area....it is about 2000meters above the sea level.......very good place...there are a lot of Catholic around him...ministry are carried out....confessions and counseling offered to the people.....
 A retreat house is under construction .....many people come for the retreat at the week end.....friars are offering their services.....
 Thomas is in charge of the construction....
 The friary is small ....it was an old men home....run by a lay person who handed over to the Capuchins...
 Another centre run by Francis Dominic...girls who are orphan and have no one to turn to....
 These children's parents either single or sick....one of them was only six months old when dropped at the door of the centre....she is growing very well...all of them are studying in the school....
 These are grown up ones....studying in the college...
 They have a bright future....they study well...sisters round the clock look after them

 They said that we can now plan our future....we will not repeat the mistakes....of our elders....they do miss their families....but some don't have....
 Sisters with a lot of love and care serve these unfortunate ones....

 Joy fills my heart when i serve these young ones...at times it is difficult and tough....but with God's grace we are able to manage
 The centre for destitute......
 Friars Thomas, Guardian Uargheese and Lijo....are young and hold a lot of future for the province....Varghese is the preacher....goes out to other states in India.....
 What a perfect picture.....the cook took our snap....friars gave her training for five minutes....and very quickly she learnt the art.....
