In his presidential address Bishop said, ” God never leave us alone or in sorrow . He has a plan on us and loves all. He can do miracles at the time of our life and also after our death. The life of Josephine Vannini is the best example for it. After her death people saw miracles and realized the God's plans. By this she got the honor of Sainthood. The trust which we keep on God makes us pure and gives us salvation. So we must follow the Gospel of God as St Vannani did. Jeevadan is following the teachings of Gospel and they are trying to bring happiness in the life of inmates. I wish them all success in their mission “





























































Adressing the gathering Fr Antony Lobo said “life is very short and time is also short . We need to complete without any delay what we are thinking to do. Josephine Vannini did everything in short time. She never kept her mission pending. The inmates of Jeevadaan also don't know about their time. So the Sisters of Daughters of the St Camilus community are trying to give them everything. Their service itself is a message to us. So we need to focus on our time and do good things to society , needy”

In his speech, John Samuel said “ Jeevadaan is my second home . Three years back I came here and experienced the life of inmates. I attracted the charity , service of the sisters of Jeevadaan. Then I decided to involve in the activities of Jeevadaan. After that I converted Jeevadaan as my own home. I am thanking all religious people of Jeevadaan for making me a member of their family. “
