Rev Fr Joseph Mathew Kadvil, S.J. also known as Swami Danananda, a distinguished member of the ALC Jesuit Community passed away on June 30, 2013, aged 82. He served ALC from 1964 to 1978 in various capacities such as Vice Principal, Lecturer in Chemistry, Assistant Warden and Warden of Gogineni and New Hostels and spent altogether 21 years of his priestly life in ALC community. He was a voracious reader, known for his keen intellect and strict disciplinarianism for the well being and bright future of .his students.
May His soul rest in Peace!
As reported earlier, ALC came into existence after the relentless efforts of late Bishop Ignatius Mummadi for ten long years, and the foundation for it was laid in the historical context of the newly formed Andhra State comprising the 13 districts of Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema. As ALC celebrates its Shastipurthi, the cycle of time seems to be repeating itself as far as the geographical area of its location is concerned, in the light of the Government of India’s decision to bifurcate the present State of A.P.
The purpose of the Golden Jubilee of the Western tradition and the Shastipurthi of the Indian tradition seems to be one and the same, as both call for a Review and Renewal. Keeping these historical contexts and their message in mind, may Andhra Loyola College march forward, trusting in Divine Providence and recommitting itself to its vision and mission of moulding its students into men and women for others, with Competence, Conscience and Compassionate Commitment for the Greater Glory of God and for making this world a better place for all, especially, the marginalized, to live in!
