Took breakfast and many other meals in this dining room, in Sneha Deepam - there are three Fathers and six Sisters. Fr. Xavier (r) is 93 and has been ordained for 63 years. The other Fr. was ordained last Sunday - we were celebrating that occasion. The Sisters have different responsibly, including the retreat center and a PreK - 12 school. The principal of the school, Sr. Elizabeth, is at the far end of the table, center.
