Sahana Maria & Akshita SN, students of M.Com I semester, both members of Social Service Club visited the Sion Spirituality Centre in Hosur, on 18th December, 2019.
Their experience in their own words:
“We got an opportunity to take a peek into the lives of the aged in an old age home and spread happiness by distributing Christmas gifts, snack and Christmas cake. It was a blissful experience. The place was a spiritual centre that provides shelter and spiritual and physical support to the aged who have been placed there for various reasons. The faculty conducted games, sung Christmas songs, and performed a dance for them. They enjoyed it a lot. Seeing their eyes light up with happiness was a humbling experience for us. We were inspired by the fact that they grow their own vegetables and fruits in their premises which is used in preparing the meals. We feel blessed to have got a chance to meet them and mingle with them and to know their life stories. We thank the management of T.John College and our Principal Rev Sr. Rose Mary for this lifetime experience.”
The students were accompanied by our Principal, Rev Sr. Rose Mary and the faculty members of T.John College. The T.John College staff whole heatedly contributed money for this charitable event. The cash collected was used to buy sweaters and pullovers for the aged. The Christmas cake was distributed to everyone. It was prepared by our Hotel Management Department and sponsored by management of T.John College.
