Our Meeting with the Administrator of the Archdiocese of Hyderabad
Tuesday brought our visit to Father Benard, the Administrator of the Archdiocese of Hyderabad. Father Bernard, who temporarily leads the Archdiocese as they await the installation of their new Archbishop, welcomed us warmly and gave us the opportunity to share the reason for our being in the Archdiocese, namely, the formalization of our exchange agreement with St. Francis College for Women.
Accompanied by their Principal, Dr. Sister Alphonsa Vattoly, we presented the introductory letter to the Archdiocese from our Bishop, His Excellency, Martin Amos. As has been our experience throughout this trip, he affirmed our steps to this point in forging ties with institutions in India.
