Fr. Pius Fernandes, S.J.

Message from Fr. Pius Fernandes, S.J., Jamshedpur Province Coordinator for Alumni, for the 4th National Congress held in Jamshedpur on October 29-31, 2004.

Dear Friends,

It truly doesn’t matter whether we are Loyoleans, Xavierians, Aloysians or Nobilians - but what matters MORE is that we ALL are Jesuit Products, who have been closely knit together through an emotional Umbilical Cord. We should be grateful to God as we had an opportunity to study in the best institutions of our country, which stress “Others before Me”.

It is truly a proud moment for the Central Zone and Loyola Alumni Association, Jamshedpur to host the 4th JAAI Congress. I feel fortunate to be in the Committees that experienced birth pangs in setting up Local, Zonal and National Jesuit Alumni Associations. A successful MANTRA for an Alumni Association is how much time TIME one gives to the Alma Mater. - I’m convinced that if we can spend just 30 minutes a week for Alumni Activities, MIRACLES will begin to happen. St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuits said that our Love for others is shown in deeds and not in words. We show our gratitude for what we have received by sharing our blessings, especially with the poor. May God continue to work Miracles through you!

I wish the Congress a grand success.
