NERUL, JANUARY 8, 2011: The Catholic students of Classes VI to IX of Don Bosco Senior Secondary School, Nerul gathered together to celebrate the Eucharist along the newly ordained priest, Fr. Ashwin who was also accompanied by Fr. Brian who is the vocation promoter of the Mumbai province. There was a small introduction of the fathers by one of our students and then the felicitation of the priests.
Fr. Ashwin told us about his childhood and how he got his divine call during the sermon. There was also the thanksgiving prayer for the gift of the two new priests, Fr. Ashwin and Fr. Oscar. After the mass the students had an interactive session wherein they could ask any question related to vocation to Fr. Ashwin. Fr. Brian also told them more about vocation and the camps conducted by the Salesians. Then the students departed after kissing Fr. Ashwin's hands which were still fresh from the oil of consecration put by the Bishop.
