Ordination of Fr.Nelson Osmand Vas
We are extremely delighted to have another
priest to our province in the person of Fr. Nelson Osmand
Vas who was ordained on the 30th of May in Our Lady of
sorrows church Udupi. Most. Rev. Gerald Isac Lobo Bishop of
Udupi anointed him in the presence of almost 50 priests and
church-full of devotees. After the Eucharistic celebration
there was a felicitation programme in Sheshashayana Hall of
Kediuyoor Hotel where all his friends with Carmelite Friars
felicitated him and partook in his celestial joy. Rev. Fr.
Archibald Gonsalves raised the toast and Fr. George
Santhumayor expressed his sentiments of joy on behalf of
Provincial who could not be present for this joyous event.
His Tanzanian co-friars wished him with a Ki Swahili Song
which caught the attention of all the invitees. Fr. Nelson
Vas acknowledged everyone who helped him to ascend the altar
of God in his thanksgiving.
Hearty Congratulations dear Fr. Nelson.
Bloom, bloom, bloom wherever you are planted.
