Greetings from your priest-brother Cyriac
I hope you received the mail which I had sent you two days back.
I am furnishing you with the list of the Seminarians and their status at present.
I would have very much loved to sent you some photos and their letters. Since I am in Rome I am unable to do that now. I am extremely sorry for that. I have asked Fr. Alex if he could send me some photos as well as the letters. I hope I can send them to you soon.
We are extremely happy that all the seminarians whom you were sponsoring have been ordained by God’s grace. They have been sent to the different parts of India and we pray that God would bless many people through their ministry and service.
We remember with much gratitude and love Mary Queen of Nations Missionary Alliance. Please convey our deepest sentiments of gratitude and promise of prayers to all in the group for their generous and self-sacrificing contribution towards this heavenly cause.
Now there are about 57 Seminarians in three batches (Theology 1, 2, and 3rd year). We will be extremely grateful and much indebted to you if you can sponsor few of them towards their seminary formation expenses for their priesthood. Please let me know how many you would be able to and accordingly I could send their names and detail.
Thank you once again dear Merla for all your sacrifices and love,
With much gratitude and love,
Malayil Cyriac (Shiju Thomas)
