In Loving Memory of Late Bishop Camillo Ballin, mccj


"We have just completed a month into Easter, and for us at AVONA it is also a month since our dear Bishop Camillo Ballin mccj returned to God on completing his life's journey & mission with courage and passion. His great expression,'Courage!' that he would often say to us, has prompted our Faith formation Ministry of AVONA to express our love and gratitude to him with a Month's Mind Memoriam entitled "COURAGE". We hope that these pages will help us to relive the legacy that our beloved Bishop has left us to carry forward." - Fr. Franco Pereira sdb - Catechetical Director, AVONA

If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal wisely with their fellow men.
