      Dear Liju Cherian,

      It is good thing that while posting about what the Bishop of the diocese did, that you wrote about the Library dedicated to Fr. V.C Samuel of Memory Eternal.

      Could you or some one have/get a catalogue of books the library has? A simple excel spread sheet with books listed will be enough

      Thank You,

      George Varghese, Calgary, Canada
