The province of Bangalore with jubilation and deep gratitude to God welcomed the newly professed confreres. The relentless and self-sacrificing work of Don Bosco Padivayal over the past year bore the fruit when 17 novices, 10 for the province of Bangalore and 7 for the province of New Delhi came forward to dedicate themselves in the service of the Lord as Salesians.
With the motto “Consecrated to be bearers of God’s love for the young,” in the presence of Rev Fr. Thonikuzhiyil Mathew (Joyce) (the Provincial of Bangalore), Fr. Jose Mathew (the Provincial of New Delhi), Fr. Koyickal Joe (Vice-Provincial), Fr. Thomas Tharayil, the novice master, priests, religious and dear ones, 17 novices made their first profession.
As we thank God for blessing our congregation with these 17 dedicated young men, let us accompany them with our prayers.
