Dimapur, Jan. 16. The first and the only Salesian of Dimapur Province for 2011-2012, from Assam, was ordained a priest of God, on January 15, at Catholic Church, Margherita, by Rt. Rev. Joseph Aind, SDB, DD, Bishop of Dibrugarh.
In his homily, the Bishop reminded the candidate that the life of a priest is a life of sacrifice and service to the people of God. He recalled to mind the three duties - to be priest, to be prophet and to be king. ''To live a life of holiness and truthfulness in words and deeds' is an important aspect and responsibility of a man of God, he further said.
While thanking the parents of Deacon Igness, for the sacrifice they made, he invited the parents present to encourage the children to choose the life of service by being priests and religious.
Dignitaries present were Fr. Joy Pallinkunnel, Vicar General of the Diocese of Dibrugarh and Fr. Nestor Guria, Vice Provincial of the Province of Dimapur, together with almost 50 priests and almost 5000 faithful which included the Sisters, Brothers, and the lay faithful.
