Mangalore, Nov 1: The grand finale of the silver jubilee celebrations of Father Muller College of Nursing (FMCON) was celebrated in its campus here on Thursday, November 1. The day coincided with the 102nd death anniversary of founder Fr Augustine Muller.

Addressing the gathering of nursing students, Dr Bernard Moras, Archbishop of Bangalore said, "As nurses, your wholehearted dedication to work is more important, since you are dealing with the life of a person and not with a commodity."

"The health sector in India has come across remarkable change over the years," Dr Bernard Moras said, adding that the increase in the growth of super-specialty hospitals, new trends in nursing and medical tourism have enabled tremendous growth in healthcare sector.

Sr Gilbert FCC, president of Trained Nurses Association of India said, "To keep pace with the rapidly changing era, there is a need to provide quality nursing education with greater standards. Interpersonal interactions prescribed by nursing graduates are out-dated," she said.

In his presidential address, Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza, Bishop of Mangalore said, "When you serve the people, serve as they are the children of God. Share their sufferings and serve with love."
 
Dr Aloysius honoured former directors and administrators who have served the College of Nursing. They were Archbishop Dr Bernad Moras, Msgr A F D’Souza, Fr Peter S Noronha, Dr Baptist Menezes and Dr C D’Souza.
 
Guest of honour, Sr (Prof) Gilbert FCC felicitated alumni who have excelled in academics and occupied important positions around the country. They were Prof Jasmine Benny, deputy registrar of RGUHS Bangalore, Dr Christopher S, Dr Larissa Martha Sams, Dr Prasanti Nattala, Dr Alphonsa, Dr Judith Noronha and others.

Chief guest, Dr Bernard Moras honoured former principals the late C Thyagarajan, Sr Loredana Korah and Sr Jacintha D’Souza. On behalf of the former principals, Sr Loredana Korah spoke.

Dr Bernard Moras released the silver jubilee souvenir on the occasion.

Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza celebrated the grand thanksgiving Eucharist at St Joseph Chapel, FMCI. 

Dr Sajeev Rai, Dr JP Alva, Dr Srinath Rao, Fr Richard Coelho, Dr Rudolf D’Sa, Fr Prakash D’Souza, Fr Vincent Saldanha, Fr Walter Pinto, Fr Vincent Pinto, Sr Aileen were others present.

Sr Winifred D’Souza, principal thanked and Fr Patrick Rodrigues, director welcomed the gathering and the guests. Darryl Aranha, organizing secretary presented the annual report. 

'EI-Vistazo,' a video giving a glimpse of Father Muller Nursing College was presented to mark the official closure of the silver jubilee year.

Mariam and Neetha compered the stage programme while Carol and Josma compered the colourful cultural event presented by the students of Father Muller.

    Twentyfive years of dedication in Nursing education at Fr. Mullers must have produced thousands of good Nurses that are already engaged in active duty all over the world.

    Twentyfive years of dedication to nursing has enabled those nurses to reach out and touch so many people in their sickness and pain -many of them must have been cured and many of them might have gone for their heavenly reward.

    The Sisters of Charity nuns at Fr. Mullers are the backbone of the Nursing industry and we all remain indebited to them for their untiring services towards humanity.

    Thank you, Fr. Mullers for all your active participation in the daily life of the sick and the needy.
