Dear Brothers,                                                                                      

Greetings and best wishes from SMA Nivas, Jadcherla!
I'm back in Chennai after a rewarding missionary experience in Amsterdam with the African migrants. I am very grateful to the Dutch Province for making my stay in the Netherlands peaceful and enriching.

I would like to thank Father Prem Kumar, the leader of the SMA Nivas community for the warm welcome, and his team Father William, our beloved Father Joji and the students for their great care. May God bless them for their good works.

On this special day, we pay homage to our venerable Founder Melchior de Marion Bresillac by reflecting on his commitment and dedication in achieving his vision of founding a society.
The 163rd Foundation Day is an occasion for us to celebrate our Indian community becoming a province. Our Founder treasured the desire to train Indian priests. He intended to establish an indigenous clergy, with its leadership, capable of accomplishing the responsibility of the Mission. May our founder's passion inspire us with a sense of mission and purpose. The foundation day also provides us with an awareness of history; we need to know where we come from. This is a day to celebrate, assess and renew our history with the ongoing journey of our society.

May the Immaculate Virgin Mother, the mother of all missionaries, continue to pray for our Province, and our venerable founder Bresillac be our inspiration on our missionary journey.!

With best wishes,
