The five newly ordained priests visit our school

 

The Salesian Mumbai Province was blessed with five new priests this year. They are: Fr. Evangelo D’Souza (past pupil of DBHS Matunga), Fr. Ranson D’Souza, Fr. Anthony Patole, Fr. Renold Lemos and Fr. Velasli Bandya. As is the practice, the newly ordained priests visit the different institutions of the Province in the month of January following their ordination in December. On Wed 10th Jan, 2018, the priests paid a visit to Don Bosco Matunga accompanied by the vocation promoter Fr. McEnroe Lopes, and celebrated mass for the Catholic students of the school. At the Eucharist, the newly ordained priests offered their prayers for the intentions of the school and the children. After the mass, the priests interacted with the Catholic students of Stds. VII, VIII and X, sharing with them their inspiring life stories and their call to the priesthood.

We thank God for the gift of these new priests to the Province of Mumbai, and pray to God Almighty to keep them in His Love. May our Blessed Mother be their constant guide and protection!
