Welcome to S.M.A.
Dear S.M.A. friends and supporters,
In remaining faithful to our time for gathering, this 25th
of June offers us a beautiful development: our Founder has
been declared VENERABLE by the Church. Let us give thanks to
Let us persevere in asking his intercession for a
miracle that will allow us to continue the journey towards
beatification. By doing so, we will be able to know him and
make him better known for the service of a Church that is
increasingly open to mission.
Fr. Anbu Kumar S.M.A. Provincial Superior.
Venerable Bishop Marion de Brésillac,
pray for us!
