The start to the 150 years celebrations got off to a flying start, yesterday July 31st 201, the feast of St Ignatius of Loyala. The Eucharist started with a beautiful context setting by Roger Pereira an illustrous Alumni from the batch of 1955, he referred to the various alumni that had achieved great things in the various fields of corporate life, govt services, armed services, globally and in India besides the well know achievements in sports.

His Eminence Oswald Cardinal Gracious Celebrated the mass concelebrated with 17 priests and the Jesuit Provincial Rev Fr Vernon Dsouza SJ. He thanked the Jesuits for their service to the community and St Stanislaus in particular and urged them to pick up the challenges today as St Ignatius would have done.

The Choir was especially beautiful with the primary students, that lent a feeling of pride, nostalgia, and service that could not help bring a tear to the eye reminiscing the years we were all there.

Readings and prayers of the faithful were done by Parents, Ex-students and Teachers.

The church was filled with all that make St Stanislaus what it is, the students, teachers, ex-teachers, ex students, parents and the community. Not to mention the wonderful decorations.

On the way to the hall one met ex-students and exchanged festive greetings on the 3 flights of stairs that all stanislites will remember.

The function in the hall was well hosted by teacher Sanjyot the current Sr School Maths teacher and she kicked it off by asking the secretary of SSESA, PTA and the teacher as well one of the school workers which was indicative how inclusive the fundtion was.
