Kolkata, Feb. 6. Cardinal Patrick D' Rosario released the book, Father Francis Convertini: Jibon O Dorson, on Venerable Francis Convertini, written by Arup Kumar Haldar on the occasion of the perpetual profession of five clerics here at Auxilium Parish Hall, Kolkata. Father Joseph Pauria, the Provincial of Kolkata, handed a copy to Cardinal Patrick D' Rosaria and Father Newton felicitated the author and music director.
The book on Father Convertini is an initiative of the Diocese of Krishnagar under the guidance of Father Newton. Arup Halder, a prominent Bengali lyricist, penned the songs in honour of Father Convertini, a Salesian Italian Missionary who worked in the Diocese of Krishnagar. Dilip Rosario, Music Director and Composer, has scored the music. At the release function, Dilip Rosario sang a song on Father Convertini.

Venerable Father Francis Convertini was born in 1898 at Contrada Marinelli, Italy. After receiving the Missionary Cross from Father Philip Rinaldi, he arrived in India on December 26, 1927. He carried out his priestly ministry in the Krishangar Diocese, where the people loved him for his goodness and gentleness. He breathed his last in Krishangar in 1976. His cause for beatification and canonization was introduced on October 16, 1991.
