Bishop Vasanthakumar & his wife Nirmala are from Bangalore and visiting the Gloucester Diocese this month. They are from the Diocese of Kanartaka Central, in South west India, that I visited in 2006 and I'm very pleased to have them visit us during their time here. It has been rather hastily arranged hence this round robin to see if you would like to meet them during their visit.
the arrangements are as follows:
Sunday 8th May: Bishop Vasanthakumar & Nirmala to attend Rangeworthy Service at 9.30am and speak.
Monday 9th May: Amongst other things they will be having lunch at Wickwar Rectory and you are very much invited to join us there at about 1pm. The Bishop and his wife will bring us up to date with their work in Bangalore amongst the street children. Hillesley Church have been supporting their Girls Hostel.
The pictures below are of the Bishop and his wife at the opening of the Girls' Hostel, 'The New Life Centre' at which I was privileged to be during my visit in 2006.
