Loyola Alumni Association Welcomes - The New Provincial

On 17 May 2011, we received the news that Rev. Dr. Sebasti L. Raj SJ was appointed by Fr. General as the Provincial of Madurai Province in the place of Rev. Dr. Mudiappasamy Devadoss SJ. The Province prayerfully felicitates him and offers its congratulations. Hearty welcome to him to guide and lead the Province. Fr. Sebasti L. Raj was born in Burma (Myanmar) on 18 February 1945 and came to India in 1965 and joined the Jesuits on 14 August. After his licentiate in Philosophy at Shenbaganur he did his Masters in Political Science in M.S. University, Baroda. He was ordained as priest in 1976. He served as Socius to the Provincial during the transition from Rev. Fr. Rex Pai SJ to Rev. Fr. Michael Jeyaraj SJ (1981-82). He obtained a doctorate from Madras University by doing research on the concept of Total Revolution by Jeyaprakash Narayan.He then went to Loyola University of Chicago, USA, for post-doctoral studies (1982-84). On his return to India, in 1984, he joined the Common House and taught Philosophy at Satya Nilayam. From 1985 to 1988, he was the Principal of Satya Nilayam. In addition, from 1986 to 1991, he was also the First Director of Satya Nilayam Research Institute. In 1991, he was appointed the Director of ISI, New Delhi, which post he held till June 1998.

From January 1998 to June 1999, he served as the National Secretary for the Apostolic Visitation of Seminaries, commissioned by the Holy See. In June 1999, he took over as the first Director of NISCORT (National Institute of Social Communication, Research and Training), run by CBCI. From January 2006 to May 2011, he was the Director of Xavier Institute of Management (XIMJ), Jabalpur, an Institute owned by the Jesuits of Madhya Pradesh.

He has made extensive evaluation studies of the CBCI and dozens of religious congregations, dioceses and educational Institutions. In that way he brings with him wide, national level experience in administration and management. He welcomes challenges because they are for him opportunities to achieve. The God of History who is with us and guides us in all our under takings will surely guide him in leading the Province for God's Greater Glory!

We place on record our sincere thanks

It is our pleasure and privilege to thank Rev. Dr. Mudiappasamy Devadoss SJ. on behalf of the Loyola Alumni Association for his service as Provincial from Nov. 2005 till 28th May 2011. As a man of obedience he plunged himself into the task of governing the Province. He believed in the group process and called for frequent consultation; he set in motion a system of governing where in there was greater transparency and dialogue. He had endless patience in negotiations; he evinced deep respect for the mystery of each person. Together with offering our deep debt of gratitude to him we assure him of our prayers and good wishes that he continues to be ever available to God's Mission wherever he is !

The Loyola Alumni Association wishes him all the best in his new ventures.

Alumni President Speaks

Dear Alumni/ae,

Education would be much more effective if the purpose was to ensure that by the time a Student leaves the Institution he should know how much he knows and how much he does not know and he should have a life long desire to learn what he does not know.

“Loyola” has imbibed in all of us the thirst for knowledge life long, and that is why we are in touch with each other today.

Loyola has given us a safety net for experimenting with life, for discovering our talents, for taking responsibility for tasks and for learning how to absorb knowledge.

I take this opportunity to wish you ALL THE BEST.

B. H. Kothari
President, Loyola Alumni Association

Fr. Rector's Message


Dear Alumni/ae,

It is my great pleasure indeed to feel one with you through this Alumni Bulletin and to share our JOYS and HOPES.

The World Loyola Alumni/ae Congress in August 2010 has given an added impetus to and insight into the whole movement of our Alumni Association besides strengthening the local units in the respective states. This rejuvenation also has brought in lot more expectations and set your alma mater's goals still higher in terms of academic- research orientation, the need of preparing quality student leaders for the nation, the urgency of capacitating the staffs and also the importance of placing Loyola on a solid financial ground. On all fronts, I am sure, your continued support and encouragement by way of offering creative suggestions, innovative proposals and contribution will go a long way to empower your alma mater.

B.Com. Batch of 1967 in Dec. 2010, Botany Alumni Reunion in Feb.2011, LOHO Meet on January 8-9, 2011, Rev. Fr. Jerome D' Souza, SJ Endowment Lecture (2010-2011) on 7th March-2011 are some of the key events of Alumni Association. The Student Directory 2010 was released in the CD format on the Graduation Day held on 12th March 2011 and the same was distributed to the new graduates. Of course, the reach out of the Alumni to the poor and marginalized students is the best part of glimpses of ‘hopes' and ‘joys'. In deed such acts are ever more laudable in nature and content. Certainly each of you is kept in our prayers and is fondly remembered for these noble acts.

Finally my hearty congratulations to all those who have taken lot of efforts under the leadership of Rev. Dr. N. Casimir Raj, SJ, Director of Loyola Alumni Association in strengthening the Loyola Alumni/ae. Kudos to you all.

With God's choicest blessing on each and everyone of you,

Rev. Fr. K. Amal, SJ
Rector, Loyola College

Fr. Secretary & Correspondent's Message

Dear Alumni/ae,

Peace.

A deep sense of gratitude wells up in my heart as I think of the contribution the former students of Loyola make to their alma mater. In the experience all over the world, an educational institution functions effectively and continues to enhance its quality, not simply by its sources within, but mostly by the ways in which the alumni/ae perform in their life after their time Loyola in their work and live their life. Most of you have demonstrated your character in your performance. That makes the name 'Loyola' shine. In that sense, Loyola's popularity heavily depends upon how you perform. We are grateful to you. 

The World Loyola Alumni Congress was a great event to bring you all back to your 'mother'. If you remember, you will, I spoke on that occasion on the need to welcome you back to Loyola to speak to your brothers and sisters about your success and failure. This is, in my view, crucial to monitor constantly the ways we teach, the ways our students learn and the ways we organise teaching and learning. It could be a guest lecture, or could be a seminar, whatever be the form, you need to come back to us and tell us what you learnt here and what made achieve what you have achieved. The wisdom you have learnt from the life you have lived so far will definitely help the present students in many ways. Warm welcome. 

As you would realise, Loyola stands today at a crossroad. It must move on to shape itself into an international institute. We need to improve the standard of teaching and improve the facilities for teaching-learning-evaluation. To achieve these ends, we need resources. Human resources, finance, and infrastructure are the three key areas in which Loyola develop itself. This development is important to stand the test of time. As the Secretary & Correspondent of the College, I want to appeal to you all to help us evolve ways of recruiting competent staff (teaching and non-teaching), and retaining them by giving them training for on-going development of their competencies. And your advice is needed to raise funds to build the corpus of Loyola. We have made some initial efforts. We have an office dedicated for this: Loyola Development Office (LDO). A brochure has been printed to explain to our alumni/ae the Loyola Master Plan and what we need to realise that plan. We would be most grateful if you could join us in this effort. I am sure you will. 

Let us resolve unitedly to take Loyola to a next stage in its service of forming men and women for others.

With every best wishes,

Rev. Dr. C. Joe Arun SJ
Secretary & Correspondent, Loyola College

Dear Alumni/ae,

I am very happy to speak to you through this Alumni Bulletin in August 2011. The World Loyola Alumni Congress organized on 28, August 2010 by the Loyola Alumni Association is still fresh in our memory. About 3000 alumni/ae attended the Alumni Congress and shared their experiences. Loyola College is proud of each and every one of you.

Loyola College has carried the flame of academic excellence and character formation for the past 86 years through innumerable challenges to keep that flame alive and burning. We have been recognized as the Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (SIRO) by the Government of India. In recognition of our excellence, UGC has chosen us for the second time as the Centre for potential for Excellence.

We have a large number of students from first generation, poor and marginalized sections in our College. We are now in the process of restructuring our curriculum to keep up the relevance and quality of the syllabi.

I gratefully acknowledge your contribution to the academic excellence by arranging lectures and industry exposure, and by increasing the access of the poor and the marginalized sections to Higher Education by providing scholarships. I encourage you to continue to give scholarships to the needy students. I hope with your cooperation “School of Commerce” will be completed soon.

I appreciate and thank Rev. Dr. N. Casimir Raj, SJ, Director and Mr. B. H. Kothari, President, Alumni Association for bringing out the Loyola Alumni Bulletin.

Let Your Light Shine.

Fr. Deputy Principal's Message

Esteemed Alumni/ae,

At the outset, Let me extend a heart-felt thanks to you all for your contributions to the growth of our college as well as to the Loyola Alumni Association in the academic year 2010-2011.

My heart is filled with joy to share my vision for the academic year 2011-12. Every page of our life is like a matchstick in the matchbox. How sweet our life can be, if we can lead a quite life like these, matchsticks, always ready and willing to serve others.

''How blessed are we if we, instead of cursing darkness give light to others, atleast like a glow-worm. If we can not be a fire, we can be a candle in the darkness. This is my prayer for you,"

Lord Give me the love that leads the way; the faith that nothing can dismay; the hope no disappointments tire; the passion that will burn like fire, let me not sink like a clod, make me thy fuel, flame of god"(Amy Carmichael).

Wish you all success in all your endeavors throughout the year.
