The home of God and Faith
Catholic Church of Christ the King has been the venue for the annual Mother Teresa Interfaith Meeting since its commencement in 2010 except last year, where it was held at St Paul’s College in Ponsonby, Auckland.
The Mother Teresa Interfaith Committee has resolved to continue to work for the causes for which it was founded by Mr Anthony and conduct the annual Interfaith Meetings.
This year’s Meeting is scheduled to be held on Sunday, November 26, 2017.
Merrill Fernando, Chairman, MJF Group and Dilmah Tea based in Colombo, Sri Lanka will be the Guest Speaker.
The Committee will announce details of the Programme in due course.
Thousands in mourning
Wenceslaus Anthony passed away at Apollo Hospital in Chennai on Sunday, July 23, 2017, as soon as a priest completed the final Prayer and Blessings. He lost his three-day battle for life and left for His Heavenly Abode, at the behest of the Lord to whom he had surrendered himself even as a child.
He was about two months short of 60 years; we had planned a celebration on September 28, 2017, the day of his birth.
He left behind his wife Susan, daughter Sneha, son Akash and thousands of mourners across the continents. God must have decided that he should be transferred to another place, which he deserved. This world bore him from September 28, 1957 and lost him 59 plus years later.
