Upon This Rock: Foundation Stone In The Himalayas
“BEING FOR GOD AND HIS PEOPLE – HERE IS THE ESSENCE OF OUR BEING!”
FR. JACOB NAMPUDAKAM

Life is a pilgrimage rooted in the words, “go forth;” or as Pope Francis would say in Italian, “uscire!” The dreamers are not only those who are merely youthful in age, but also those who have a youthful heart. Here is the very tale of our own Fr. Augustine Kolencherry SAC, who in his mid-seventies, left for the Pallottine Mission of Arunachal Pradesh, located in the Himalayas. In what seemed like an improbable mission, it has turned into one of the Epiphany of the Lord Province’s (Nagpur, India) most flourishing projects for God. Now, Fr. Thomas KP SAC has placed a foundation stone in Siyum, as the foundation for the new St. Vincent Pallotti School building.
