First Provincial Chapter was held

Bengaluru: The first provincial Chapter of the St. Camillus Province, India was held on 18th February 2017. It began with a prayer led by Fr. Bacil Singh who was invited for the same by Fr. Jaison Narikkuzhy, the Vicar Provincial. The Vicar Provincial then called upon Fr. Baby Ellickal, the Provincial to introduce and welcome Rev. Fr. Xaviour Manavath, CMF who was to lead the Chapter members into a spiritual recollection. Fr. Manavath began the same with a reading from the Gospel of St. Mathew (15:13ff) which read: “You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men”. He emphasized that God’s hand has been at work in the Order of the Ministers of the Infirm manifested in the growth of this new province. He used the title of this Chapter to draw a three-dimensional look into the life of the province – the past, present and the future. He exhorted the Chapter to look into the socio, cultural, linguistic and ecclesial context of the apostolate of the Order and allow itself to be questioned by the Holy Spirit. He clarified the difference between democracy and discernment by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; what a Chapter of this kind, according to Fr. Manavath, looks at is the latter. Fr. Manavath ended his talk quoting from the writings of St. Camillus.
The Chapter, after the tea break, celebrated the Holy Eucharist presided over by Fr. Manavath and concelebrated by Fr. Provincial and Fr. Vicar Provincial.
