Mangalore: Celebrations of 350th Death Anniversary Year of renowned Saint of the poor, St Vincent de Paul were concluded and hosted by St Francis Assisi Area Council (North), Mangalore of the SSVP in Bondel Parish Hall on Sunday the 25th of September 2011.
 
Parish Priest of Bondel Church, Rev Fr Andrew D’Souza inaugurated and presided over the day long function consisting of several activities.  Rev Dr Ronald Cutinha, Spiritual Advisor, SSVP Mangalore Central Council was the Chief Guest.  In his address, Dr Cutinha said that voluntary service is not an option but compulsion without seeking glorification and is also an inspiration to those conferences lagging behind in doing justice to the SSVP.   
 
























Bro. Sunil Stevan Vas, President, St Francis Assisi Area Council (North) Mangalore welcomed the guests and the gathering.  Seated on the dais were Bro. Albert Sequeira, President, SSVP Mangalore Central Council, Bro. Ronald Lasrado, President of SSVP, Bondel Conference, who proposed vote of thanks. Bro. Joachim D’Souza, Vice President, Mangalore North Area Council conducted the programme. About 500 people took part in the day’s activity and this included members of 11 conferences covered by St Francis Assisi Area Council (North) Mangalore, benefactors, honorary and retired members and aided families.  There were skits presented by members on the life of St Vincent de Paul reminding the members of their responsibility towards SSVP.  The function was concluded by Holy Eucharist celebrated by Rev Dr Ronald Cutinha during which the members had to re-dedicate themselves in the service of the poor following the life of their late Saint.
