MISSIONARIES OF ST. FRANCIS DE SALES

Rev. Fr. P. Chinnappa Reddy msfs Provincial

My Dear Confreres,

Fraternal greetings of peace and joy of the Lord to all of you. Thank you for your prayers and wishes for the success of TMM Meeting at Arusha, Tanzania. I had very hectic but fruitful days in Africa. Being my first trip outside India, it was quite exciting and enriching experience. The new academic year has just begun and I am sure that all of you are quite busy with your responsibilities pertaining to your respective apostolate.

I would like to bring to your kind consideration a study paper presented on MSFS RETREAT CULTURE by Rev. Fr. Agnelo Fernandes MSFS, General Secretary for Mission. I exhort all of you to read it meditatively and understand the spirit of this study in order to cultivate a good MSFS retreat culture. In order to be better enlightened, I suggest to you to please take this study paper for discussion in your next apostolic community meeting...(for more details check download the June Circular)
