JESUS, the High priest chooses two more for his priestly fold!
Deacon Stephen Lobo was ordained on the 22nd of April in Infant Jesus Church, Modankap, while on the following day it was the turn of Deacon Ashwin Rohan D’Silva in the newly established parish of St. Francis Xavier, Saverapura. Most Rev. Aloysius Paul D’Souza, the Bishop of Mangalore laid his hands on the ordinandi and anointed their hands at the meaningful rite of Priestly Ordination. Around 40 priests (mostly Carmelite friars) participated in these functions, along with the families and villagers. It is after a long time that the ordination ceremony is not held jointly at our St. Joseph’s Monastery, Carmel Hill. Since there were only two candidates, the Bishop willingly accepted to conduct the Priestly Ordinations in their respective native parishes. He wished that there be a boom of vocations from among the youngsters who witnessed the celebrations. We all pray that the newly ordained work with zeal for the church and in particular in our Province.
