Penetrating deep into the essence of the Vincentian charism, the feast day celebrations in the Chandapura Community commenced with a nine-day novena to St. Vincent de Paul.

On Sept. 27, which marked the Feast Day of St. Vincent de Paul, three new Sisters of Charity of Nazareth Associate candidates, Alphina Mary, Gigy Joseph, and Priscilla Phillip, made their first commitment during the Eucharistic celebration. As a commemoration of the Jubilee year, a sapling was planted by two former Ashakiran Girls, Sumanlal and Sita, presently working in Bangalore. After the pandemic, it was good to have religious from different congregations grace the occasion with their presence.

The celebration in Chandapura was one of many ways. Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and Associates observed the Feast Day of St. Vincent de Paul across the provinces. A special prayer service was organized on Sept. 27 by the International Intercultural Committee. Sisters also celebrated with Mass, meals, messages, and more. Some Feast Day gatherings were small, and others were larger. For example, Dharuhera Community celebrated with the priests, Sisters, and brothers of Rewari Deanery, with about 40 people present.
