Dear Xaverians,

I write to you on a happy note to share the good news that the sixth international chapter of the SXCCAA was launched in Las Vegas, USA on the 8th of this month. Led by Rev. Fr. Dr. J. Felix Raj, SJ, the Principal of the College and the President of SXCCAA a team of five alumni members, comprising of Chandan Roy Chaudhuri, Arindam Sil (Vice Presidents),Debasish Moitra,  Ricky Chandra and your's truly participated from Kolkata.

We were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of the participating Xaverians from all parts of the USA - from students who left the college way back in 1954 to those passing out in 2012 - who in the truest spirit of Nihil Ultra joined to take the pledge: to renew the bonds of fraternity and rededicate themselves for the cause of their alma mater. The Chapter Coordinators Vikrant Kapoor  and Ruben Ghoshal   did an excellent job in not only putting the network in place but also in ensuring that we have a glitch less and near perfect programme. Join me as we applaud their effort. 

The sapling has been planted and I am sure in the days and years to come, nurtured by values Xaverian, the giant oak will rise to its full splendor.

With Best Regards,

Firdausul Hasan
Hon. Secretary
