Mysuru: The Catholic Diocese of Mysuru in collaboration with Mysore Diocesan​ ​Educational Society honoured the meritorious Catholic students of SSLC, PUC, Degree, post-graduation and other professional courses from Mysuru, Mandya, Chamarajanagara and Kodagu Districts through an online programme held at St. Philomena’s College (Autonomous) Auditorium at​ ​Bannimantapa in the City here on Friday, January 21.

The Diocese of Mysuru with a rich experience of more than sixty years in the field of education​ ​has been honouring the meritorious Catholic students and institutions since 2012. It has been​ ​managing more than 150 educational institutions under MDES in the southern districts of​ ​Karnataka.

Addressing the meritorious students virtually, Rev. Dr K. A. William, Bishop of Mysuru, who presided over the programme, said that this felicitation should act as a stepping stone towards building a glorious future for oneself. He opined that value-based education should promote empathy, fraternity and prompt us to build together. The Bishop further added that one’s success did not mean the other’s destruction. He hoped that the young minds radiate love and compassion, making this world a better place.

Rev. Dr Sebastian Adayanthrath, Bishop of Mandya, who was the chief guest at the event, recollected the famous letter by Abraham Lincoln to his son’s teacher while speaking about the importance of value-based education. The poem is full of optimism and values like generosity and tolerance which he strongly believed were important for a fruitful life. The Bishop advised the young minds to discover humanness in all spheres of life and nurture oneself internally rather than choosing to be a part of the mindless rat race.

Dr Adayanthrath​ ​called upon the teachers to exercise patience and always remember that their actions have touched someone and that they are contributing immensely towards shaping the future of the nation. More than 400 students of the Catholic Diocese of Mysuru were also felicitated this year for academic excellence.
