It is a custom to organize an outing for our postulants when they happen to be at Kappadu for Onam celebrations. Since we had to hire a bus this time it was decided to take the students of Philosophy also with them. The Formation Masters of all the groups went with them. They had the outing to Ernakulam side. They visited several places of interest in and around Ernakulam. They also had a pleasant ride in the Kochi Metro. Though there was rain in the morning, they were lucky to have sun the rest of the day. They enjoyed the outing and were back in the monastery around 11:00 p.m.
