On Sunday, 13 September 2020, Brothers Efraim and Javier Angel commemorated 25 years of Religious Life in the Institute of the Brothers of the Holy Family. The ceremony, simple but solemn, took place in the Formation House of Eluru (India). The two Brothers gathered for the festive occasion, leaving their responsibilities in the Delegation as Delegate of the Provincial and Master of Novices, to celebrate 25 years of fidelity and perseverance, as a gift and a joy.

The thanksgiving Eucharist was celebrated in the chapel of the Aspirancy; the Brothers entered in procession together with the celebrating priests, who came from the neighbouring Community of the Sacred Hearts. Father Michael, superior of the community, was the main celebrant. During the Mass, the readings of the vocation of Jeremiah and the letter of St. Paul to the Colossians were read, which were the readings of the First Profession; the Gospel of St. John, was the same Gospel as in the Perpetual Profession. At the end, in thanksgiving, Br. Efraim recalled the meaning of the readings and the two Brothers ended by singing the song of Kairoi “You have seduced me, Lord”.

In the evening, the traditional “cultural programme” took place, with dances, songs and dancing, in which all those present participated. The Jubilee Brothers expressed the joy and emotion of the moment with speeches and one song “What a detail, Lord, you have had with me”.
