Today I met Father Joy from Holy Name of Jesus. He is our new priest from India. Father Joy was born in Kerala India and wanted to be a priest when he was older, Kerala spreads over 38 683km2 and has 34.8 million people. Father Joy came from India and worked at St. Theresa, Edmonton, and St. Thomas More Catholic Parish Church before he came to Vermilion and is currently working at Holy Name of Jesus Church. Father Joy had also talked about the languages of India, the language in his Provence was Malayalam. In India the main Language is Hindi. Father Joy had a sister and a couple brothers but he mostly talked about his sister not his brothers, his sister is a nun which had inspired him to become a priest.
Father Joy also talked about the religions in India there is a lot of them like Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, and others. Also, Father Joy talked about and said that Thomas the Apostle traveled to Tamilakam which is in the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
