Mumbai, Dec. 22. Dn. Johnson Kshirsagar and Dn. Kiran Salve, two Deacons of the Mumbai Salesian province,  were ordained priests on 20 December 2014 at St. John Bosco Church, Savedi, Ahmednagar by Rev. Bishop Lourdes Daniel, Bishop of Nashik Diocese.
The ceremony that began at 10:00 am witnessed a gathering of about 45 priests, 30 sisters and around 2,500 attendants from nearby villages, and few others from Mumbai.

In his homily, the Bishop Daniel emphasized on the vocation of a priest, as someone who draws the faithful to God and who represents Christ. The priest is one who forgives people on behalf of Christ, he added.

After the celebration of the Eucharist, a felicitation ceremony was conducted where the newly ordained priests were felicitated along with the bishop, the Vice Provincial Fr. Ajoy Fernandes, the Economer Fr. Elson Barretto, and the parish priest Fr. Manuel. A fellowship meal was then served to all present.

Fr. Manuel along with his community and parish council members worked hard to make this day a memorable one.

The next day the newly ordained priests Fr. Johnson and Fr. Kiran celebrated their first mass, one at 8:30 a.m. and the other at 5. 00 p.m.
