Record of events after the Triennial Conference at Mysore April 2013

I am happy to present before the honored members of the Xavier Board, a brief report of events that have taken place after the triennial conference 2013, to-date. Six months ago, Xavier Board celebrated the completion of sixty eventful years of its existence. All of us have witnessed the grand finale of this Diamond Jubilee celebrations, held at Prabhodhana, a sprawling campus of nature’s delight, enriched by ornamental plants and greeneries in Mysore. There is no denying the fact of the intricate planning and organizing of the whole event which truly deserve a big applause. We acknowledge with gratitude, the untiring effort of the former team of office bearers and board members, who worked with grit and fervor, to make the event worthy of its significance. We place on record, the spirited services of Prof. Varghese Vazaphally, the former president, Rev. Fr. Dhana Paul S.J., former secretary General, Sr. Doris D’souza, vice president, Fr. Leslie Moras, the Principal of St Philomina’s College, and the willing support and co-operation of friends and benefactors, with special mention of the staff and students of St. Philomina’s College, Mysore and the spirited guidance of Fr.
