After his Priestly Ordination on April 7, 2005, Fr. Aloysius spent 10 years taking good care of our cardamom plantation at Vazhaveedu, Anakkara. Meanwhile he was also the superior of our daughter house there, and, for a few years; he was also the formation master of a group of postulants there. So far he did not have a chance for any higher studies, except that he was once sent to the Renewal Course in Sant’ Anselmo, Rome. So, it was decided to send him to the Indian Institute of Spirituality in Bangalore, which is affiliated to St. Peter’s Pontifical Seminary, Bagalore, and where Abbot John continues to offer a course on Benedictine Spirituality. Fr. Aloysius welcomed the proposal and he is already there and is doing well.
