Mr Francis Arackaparambil, father of Fr Isaac Arackaparambil, SDB (Kapadvanj), passed away the morning of 13 October. The funeral is being held at Immaculate Conception Church, Borivli, even as I write.
Fr Isaac was a novice, a student of philosophy (BPh and MPh), and then also a Practical Trainee and teacher in Divyadaan.
He told me this morning that his father had been unwell, suffering from diabetes for many years, and that of late his kidneys had begun failing; still, they did not expect to lose him so quickly. Fr Isaac was providentially with his father when he passed away.
RIP, Mr Francis, and our sincerest condolences to Fr Isaac and his family.
