Animation for the young Capuchin and Franciscan Friars at Kotagiri

It was going back to my formation time. The young and energetic friars gathered to prepare for their final commitment....from CCMSI and other Franciscan families....Capuchins are in big numbers....the surrounding and climate of Kotagiri is good enough for the young friars to pray, meditate and reflect a lot about their commitment.....the animation group Friars Lawrence, Wilson and Joseph are doing their best to provide all the help and support to these young friars....Kotagiri is a hill station and its beauty attracts all the Indians.....Tea and coffee gardens.....huge tress and flowers of all kinds .....the presence of religious is significant....the church is vibrant too...... 
 The friars asked me cook some pork....coz i had prepared last years too.....it was a joy to prepare for about 100 people....there are 40 philosophers from SOuth and North Tamil Provinces.....52 candidates for the solemn vows preparations....but the brothers got ready everything and then it was my job.....
Friars from Maharashtra.....there are 6 of them and they will make their solemn vows in May....
 Yesterday evening they put up a cultural program....dances, skits, songs and mimicry all so fabulous ....entertaining......i joined them singing some old Hindi songs....i got all of them to sing along and clap....wow what a great joy.....
