On October 12, 2008, a few days before, our Bro. Juan accompanied our three brothers from the Manjummel Province (India), who are also studying at the Teresianum, to the canonization of the first Indian, Sister Alphonsa of the Immaculate Conception. With Bro. Juan are left to right, Bro. Shon 1st year, Bro. Lincemon 3rd year, and Bro. Joemon 2nd year (Bro. Juan's classmate). We have a special bond with our brothers from the Manjummel Province because several members of the Province have served with us in California and Arizona for the last few years.
