Brad Rozairo, OMI – Covid-19 has made us turn to social media for some of our Delegation gatherings. So far using ZOOM software, we have had council meetings, a 90th birthday celebration for Fr. John Iwo, a prayer service on the occasion of 25 years of canonization of our Founder, and at the end of last month the online Delegation Christmas gathering with our Provincial Fr. Roshan Silva who is stationed in Sri Lanka.
Our thanks to the Oblate community in Koga for organizing a prayer service during the Christmas gathering online which was based on the life of St. Joseph, Pope Francis proclaimed the“Year of Saint Joseph” running from December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021. After the prayer service, the members of the Delegation exchanged Christmas greetings with each other. We were happy to have our Provincial with us and share a few words. Towards the end of the one-hour gathering, the Delegation Superior made a few announcements and thanked the members for coming together. Below are a few pictures of our online gathering.
In the midst of this pandemic, we try to remain connected with each other and continue to remember all the people suffering throughout the world especially the victims of Covid-19.
