The Province of Bangalore is blessed with three new priests this year. All the ordinations took place in their respective native parishes. Fr. Dandavathi Joseph was ordained at Gangavathi in Bellary Diocese on 22nd December 2017, by Rt. Rev. Henry D’Souza, Bishop of Bellary; Fr. Cinto Kannaen was ordained on 30th December 2017 at Manjnapra, by Cardinal George Alencherry, the Major Archbishop of Syro Mamabar Church and Fr. Shino Kalapurackal was ordained on 1st January at Paika by Rt. Rev. Joseph Kallaranghat, Bishop of Pala. All the ordinations were organized very well and participated by large number of priests, religious and lay faithful. All the new priests were given a reception at the Provincial House, Bangalore on 12th February 2018. Rev. Fr. Joyce Thonikuzhiyil and several salesians concelebrated in the Holy Eucharist with the new priests. We pray for all the new priests that they may grow to be good shepherds and Pastors after God’s own heart, experience the joy and fulfilment of priesthood, become holier day by day and be a source of blessing to all they serve in their salesian priestly ministry.
