Mangaluru: The tiny sapling planted by Venerable Mother Veronica, the founder of the Apostolic Carmel Congregation in the year 1870 has grown into a mighty tree. She was ever attentive and attuned to the will of God and fulfilled her desires with heroic faith, generosity and a spirit of joyful surrender. St Agnes PU College conducted various activities from Nov 13, 2022, to Nov 19, 2022, to remember and celebrate the life of Venerable Mother Veronica.

To help students get a deeper understanding of her saintly life, Mother Veronica‘s photos and videos of her life were displayed on the television projector. A digital painting competition, poetry writing competition and quiz on Mother Veronica was held for all the students. Students decorated the notice boards creatively with Venerable Mother Veronica’s gems and life.

To mark the 116th death anniversary of Venerable Mother Veronica, on 19th November.
