The Rogate Ashram community dedicated a community hall in honor of Fr. Joseph Aveni, the "eternal" novice master. Fr. Luigi Toffanin, the major superior inaugurated the hall as he began the official canonical visit to the community. Fr. Vinu, the superior of Ashram explained to the community, the valuable life shared by Fr. Aveni to the whole congregation and especially to the formation of our Indian pioneers. A short biography of Fr. Aveni was read and the whole community prayed for the eternal repose of Fr. Joseph Aveni.
