PUNE, JANUARY 09, 2012: On January 7, 2012 the community of Don Bosco Youth Centre, Pune along with the FMA Sisters and the Salesian Family were glad to have five of our newly ordained priests: Frs. Osborn, Rolvin, Rixon, George and Pratap.
It's a huge commitment to take on the mantle of Christ. But, the newly Ordained Priests have made their commitment to faithfully live for God, spread his word and build His flock. They have accepted His call to "Follow me" without reservation.
Fr. George was the main celebrant and Fr. Osborn preached the homily sharing his reflections on the Gospel and highlighting on the theme of his ordination and also shared how he responded to this call.
The mass was well animated by the brothers based on the theme "Joy in the call of God". After the Eucharistic celebration the community felicitated the new Priests with the cutting of the cake followed by words of appreciation.
May the dynamism and the faithfulness of these new priests invite many more youngsters to work in the vineyard of the Lord.
