Mangaluru, Nov. 21 : To commemorate the sesquicentennial celebration of the Apostolic Carmel Congregation (1870-2020) in India, St. Agnes CBSE School faculty celebrated the day on 17th November 2020 with great enthusiasm. The programme began by rendering gratitude for the abundance of God’s blessings showered on the Apostolic Congregation in all these 150 years. The prayer service conducted by Sr. Sweedal Fernandes A.C. illustrated the physical values of the light house and compared it to the Apostolic Carmel Congregation which has been a beacon of light for the past 150 years. A candle symbolising the existence of the establishment of the Apostolic congregation in India was lit so that many may receive the light of knowledge. To continue to spread this light of knowledge to the young generation a bookmark was handed over to the staff.
