St. John of God Ashram, Orissa, India
Consecration and opening ceremony
The St. Thomas Indian Province of the Hospitaller Brothers of St. John of God had a long cherished dream since the last 10 years to start a mission in one of the underdeveloped states of India, Orissa. This long cherished dream is realized on the 4th of November 2017 by the inauguration and blessing of the St John of God Ashram, a centre for the differently abled in Sindurapally, Chatrapur, Orissa.
His grace Rt. Rev Dr Sharat Chandra Nayak blessed the centre for the differently abled. The school for differently able was inaugurated by Madame Françoise de Polignac, president of AAJI (Association pour l’aide aux jeunes infirmes et aux personnes handicapees, 223 rue Lecourbe, 75015 Paris) and Bro Paul Adnon from France.
The community building was inaugurated by Brothers Seraphim Schorer and Thomas Väth from Bavarian Province, Germany.
This endeavour was carried out by the generous help from the Hospitaller Brothers of the French Province and their charity organization AAJI, the Bavarian Province and a generous benefactor from Austria.
On this occasion the 4th November 2017 the Golden Jubilee day of Bro Savio, we celebrated his Golden Jubilee. He was instrumental in actualizing this project.
