As if by the stroke of the Divine Hand, Rev. Fr. Monday Benjamine Edobor, OAR was born on the Feast of the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Thus, the Thomasian community celebrated two birthdays last September 8, 2023.

Thomasians offered fresh flowers to the Blessed Virgin after the communal praying of the Holy Rosary. Then, in chorus a birthday song was sang for Fr. Edobor. The CST-R Vice-President for Identity, Formation & Mission later received gifts from the students.
