(New Rochelle, NY – May 15) – On Friday, May 17, Br. Hubert Twagirayezu, SDB, of the Great Lakes Province, will graduate from Iona University in New Rochelle with a master’s degree in business. The following day, Fr. Geomon Kalladanthiyil, SDB, of the Bangalore Province will graduate from Fordham University in the Bronx with a doctorate in education. Br. Hubert has been a member of the provincial house community during his two years of study, while Fr. Geo was serving as parochial vicar at Our Lady of the Assumption-Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish in the Bronx and for five years.

The provincial residence community celebrated the achievements of both confreres with a graduation party on Sunday evening, May 12. Fr. Mike Conway and Br. Bernie Dubé prepared a spectacular meal, and the community presented both graduates-to-be with cards and gifts. Both Br. Hubert and Fr. Geo voiced profound gratitude for the friendship and support offered by the province in these years, especially at the provincial house. Both will soon return to their own provinces for new apostolic responsibilities.
