The most important event of the day was held in the evening, the Henosis- the commemoration of the 150thanniversary of our Charism. Fr. Albert Kollamkudy spoke about the importance of Yoga in our spiritual life while Fr. Lijo Kalarickal and Srs. Merlin and Agnes of Daughters of Divine Zeal dealt with the background leading to the emergence of the Charism, ‘Rogate’. The event was concluded with the fabulous cultural presentation by various communities belonging to the St. Thomas Quasi Province.
