A Grand Fête in Gaya

Posted by Spalding Hurst

The Nazareth Old Students Association in Gaya held a Grand Fête full of fun cooking and entertainment for the students and parents at the Nazareth Academy campus on Nov. 12.

Among the many food stalls, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth set up to raise funds for the Eastern Province Development Office with Sister Rena Fernandes presiding and Sister Tarcicia Hembrom assisting. The Sister’s stall sold momos made by Binu Fudong, Sister Rinzi’s sister. They also sold cupcakes and fruit punch. Sister Roselyn Karakattu was on her feet all day baking cupcakes and fruit punch and supervising the momo-making unit.

Sisters Aruna Ekka Jn, Anita Tigga, and Tarcilla Kandulna organized (as well as performed) a “Fun ‘n Frolic” for the students with an entrance fee. All this was made possible with the wholehearted support and accompaniment of Sister Sophia Joseph, the principal.

Sister Rena says, “I went back to Gurgaon feeling very good about what was able to be raised for the missions.”

The village of San Vincente, located on the edge of the Guatemalan border, might appear to be an unexpected locale to find the enduring spirit of St. Vincent de Paul. Yet, it’s here that a small but vibrant Catholic Church, named in honor of the saint, stands as a symbol of his legacy.
