St. Anthony’s PU College and Darshan College celebrate College Day:
“Jnanenaiva Vimukthi: Liberation through knowledge” is an evocative motto of St.Anthony’s Institutions run by the Capuchin Friars of Karnataka. An incredible and extravagant College Day was celebrated by the Anthonians wherein the Registrar of Bangalore University, Prof. Dr. K. K. Seethamma as a Chief Guest, she felicitated the Bachelor’s Degree Holders with the convocation Certificate. Stressing on the role of teachers as good mentors the Registrar gave a new impetus to the academics as well as to the life out-side the classrooms. In her address she recalled the contributions of Dr. Varghese Kurien, Swami Vivekananda and others who had a dream for the nation. Being an Economist of high profile she highlighted on the global and local market and she stressed that progress and development is possible only when every child in this country is empowered with education.

Darshan College NSS Unit camps at Sumanahalli Leprosy Rehabilitation Centre
Darshan College NSS unit ventures into social service and unveils to the students the taste of service of the needy, poor & the marginalized. Under the able leadership of the Principal Rev. Fr. George Monis, Vice-Principal Rev. Fr. Nitin D’Souza and the Faculty members, 50 NSS volunteers camped at Sumanahalli, a village of “people of good will”. All began in 1978 at the initiative of the then Chief Minister of Karnataka and the then Arch Bishop of Bangalore to treat and to rehabilitate the leprosy-afflicted persons in and around Bangalore. The Good work continued to treat and rehabilitate not only the leprosy-afflicted persons but also HIV inflicted patients, disabled destitutes and street children of Bangalore. Today, Sumanahalli is a model of “par excellence” of collaborative, voluntary and participatory action of Fathers, Brothers, Sisters and Lay People to extend helping hand for the empowerment of the poor and the marginalized.

Cultural Christmas Celebration @ Darhan & St. Anthony’s College
The Spirit of Christmas embraced the Anthonians and inspired them to go beyond the borders, religions, faiths and cultures. As the Star of Bethlehem lead the quest of the three Kings of the Orient, finding the true light in the newly born babe Jesus of Nazareth, so also the openness to fraternity and solidarity made the Anthonians to walk together as children of God embracing the whole humanity. This spirit of one family reined the celebration as they sang, danced, enacted and portrayed the multi-lingual and multi-cultural Christmas celebration. The Chief Guest V. Rev. Fr. Jerome, the newly elected Prior of Benedictine Monastery, Ashirvanam, shared a fitting message where the Birth of Jesus is the culmination of the mystery of visibility, the Immanuel: God-with-us. He said our lives are meaningful only when we live this mystery fully by loving and embracing the humanity and creation as God’s precious gift. What we receive, may we share with one another for the Glory of God and for the peace on earth in the coming days and the year 2016!
