His Lordship Rt. Rev. Dr. Govindu Joji, the bishop of Nalgonda, Andra Pradesh

The Rogate Ashram community welcomed, His Lordship Rt. Rev. Dr. Govindu Joji, the bishop of Nalgonda, Andra Pradesh. It is in the diocese of this bishop that we have opened our first missionary presence outside Kerala, Rogate Sneha Bhavan,  The bishop has been so welcoming and generous towards the Rogationits. Today, he came for the general assembly of the Catholic Bishops Conference of India,  (CBCI)held for the first time in Kerala. His Lordship wanted to pay a fatherly visit to our community, accompanied by the Major Superior, Fr. Shajan. We  warmly welcomed to the bishop and he celebrated the Holy Eucharist and inspired the religious community inviting all to die like a grain of wheat in order to yield a rich harvest as we celebrated the martyrdom of St. John Britto. He joined the community for the breakfast and left to Kottayam for the CBCI meeting.
