LONAVLA-PUNE, JANUARY 23, 2015: The New Priests, Frs. Kiran Salve and Johnson Kshirsagar visited the community of Don Bosco Aspirantate and Apostolic School Lonavla on January 21, 2015. They celebrated the Eucharist and shared the fellowship meal with the community.
The new priests arrived at 7.00 p.m. after which they freshened up and celebrated the Eucharist with the community at 7.30 p.m. They offered the Eucharist for the intentions of the community and asked the community of Lonavla to pray for them. After the Eucharist, the boys and the staff kissed the hands of the new priests. They then shared their vocation stories with the community after which the boys asked them a few questions which they most willingly answered. This was followed with the group photograph and dinner.
The new priests were greatly happy to come back to the place where they began their journey towards the priesthood. They were happy to spend some time cherishing these memories with the community.
