The festal celebration, honouring Pope Pius X, the Patron Saint of Fr. Pius was commenced with the Eucharistic celebration at 6:30 PM in Claret Villa Chapel. Fr. Pius celebrated the Eucharist with about 30 concelebrating priests who came from neighbouring Claretian and other religious communities. On this occasion Fr. Pius also released the handbook of the community of Claret Villa for 2017-18 and gave the first copy to Fr. Isaac Padinjarekuttu, the dean of studies at Oriens Theological College. Later Fr. Mathew Vadakkel, the superior of Claret Villa community officially welcomed and introduced all the priests to the new members of the community. Following this, strengthening in the bond of fraternity, an agapic meal was served for all.
