Father Stanislaus Swamikannu SDB appointed Rector at the Ratisbonne Salesian community in Jerusalem.  by Brother Simolin SDB
    Chennai, Aug. 5. 2017 In the evening of 3 August 2017, the community of Becchi Don Bosco celebrated the good work done by Father Stan, remembering the great bonds of friendship and love that he inspired throughout the community. ``I thank my God, each time I think of you and when I pray, I pray with gladness.`` These are the words of St. Paul to his people in Philippi.  He is appointed as Rector of the Ratisbonne Salesian community in Jerusalem.
    `Life is a journey and not a destination` and at each stage in life there are `entry` and `exit` stations, said Father Stan. Your parting words still ring in our ears, `Though each leave-taking is painful, it opens up potential for growth.`  Our prayer is that the God who has guided, protected and accompanied you these past many years may continue doing so all your life. May you be always blessed and may your apostolate in Jerusalem bear abundant fruit.
