Sister Eileen Connelly, Tony Stieritz and Mike Gable visited Sacred Heart College in Changacherry, which offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programs for women.

Some images from the basilica where Francis Xavier’s relics are entombed. Fr. Joe Montero, a Jesuit of the Goa Province, celebrated a private Mass for us at the foot of the tomb…a very sacred experience.

The trip ended up in Goa, India.
