VIP Capuchin gathering at Vatican on Br. Jossy’s Birthday
The 67th birthday celebration of our dear Br. Jossy Fernades, this time
in Rome, brought together our Capitulars for the General Chapter – Bros.
Dolphy Pais, Alwyn Dias, Paul Melwin (Karnataka), Henry Alva (Canada)
and Denis Fernandes (Japan) – along with Bros. Marcel Rodrigues, J.B.
Sequeira, Denis P. Lobo and Denis Veigas, for a happy ‘dinner out’ at a
Chinese Restaurant near Vatican on Tuesday 11th September. It was an
unique gathering of our brothers from Karnataka Province holding
prominent position as major superiors in Karnataka and abroad and the
friars who are rendering their service here in Foggia, Italy.
Br. Jossy himself being chosen as one of the Reporting Secretaries in
the present General Chapter, we wished him ‘Many happy returns of the
Day’ by raising the glasses of wine for a joyful ‘chin chin’ and
relishing the dishes for his health, thanking him, at the same time, for
the service he renders for the Capuchin Order and for our Province in
