The DBL family, who fondly treasures the memories of Br. Ambrose Nellikkal, celebrated his first death anniversary on Saturday, 03 December 2016. A Eucharistic Celebration led by Rt Rev. Fr. Joseph Soren Gomes, Bishop of Krishnagar, concelebrated by a number of salesians and attended by brother’s relatives from Kerala and Hyderabad, salesian sisters, friends, past pupils, staff members and students of DBL, reflected on his life, death and his final journey to eternal home in heaven.
In his homily, Bishop Joseph Gomes lovingly remembered Brother as a man with a tough exterior but a soft and compassionate soul. His soundtechnical knowledge and deep spirituality was also extolled. The adornments of the altar, the beautiful hymns by the choir brought about a sense of piety and heavenly charm to the celebration. To commemorate the occasion and keep the memory of Brother alive and glowing in our hearts a bookmark with the prayer ‘Virgin Mary Untier of Knots’ was handed out to all those who had gathered in the holy solemnity. A fellowship dinner was partaken of by all. May divine light shine upon him!
