All Roads led to Sughad on 29 March -Johnson.K

All roads led to Sughad on 29 March to participate in the joy of the golden jubilee of Fr. Isudas Cueli as a priest. This celebration had the distinction of having the eldest Jesuit in the province, Fr. Pariza, as one of the esteemed guests. After a very meaningful Eucharistic celebration in Gujarati, there was a short felicitation program in which Fr. Isudas was thanked by the provincial for the great contribution he has made to the church of Gujarat. He mentioned that the Word was made flesh and it was made flesh in Gujarati by Fr. Isudas. Fr. Rocky D’Silva, the vicar-general of the arch-diocese of Gandhinagar, represented the Archbishop Stanislaus Fernandes SJ who was unable to come due to unavoidable engagements outside Gujarat. Frs. Jebamalai and Malar from Gandhinagar archdiocese felicitated Fr. Isudas with a bouquet and a shawl. Bp. Thomas Macwan, who also wanted to come, had expressed his inability to attend due to pressing needs elsewhere. Inspite of being a working day and the celebration being held in the noon, a decent crowd had come to express their gratefulness to Fr. Isudas for the contribution that he had made in their lives. Needless to say of the excellent arrangements  made by the novitiaite team led by Frs. Ashok Macwan, Jitendra D’Monte and  Shekhar Manickam.  (Johnson K)
