Fr. Joy is from Kerala, India. He has four brothers and one sister. His sister is a nun who worked at a pediatric hospital. She knew he wanted to be a priest, so she helped him to pursue his dream. He talked about how the schools aren’t very good but the private ones were, but they were expensive. His parents sent him to a private school. He said that they have to pay for medical care in India like they do in the states so the religious groups have hospitals to help the poor people. There are lots of religions in India. He went to university for 14 years for the fine arts and being a priest. It is very hot where he lives. Kerala is very small but there is a lot of people that live there. He sounds like a good priest and his story is interesting. I am excited to meet Fr. Joy.
