Five New Priests Ordained by Archbishop Thumma Bala for The Province of Hyderabad


By Father Kalyan Kumar SDB
Mumbai, Dec. 22. The province of Hyderabad came together to celebrate the priestly ordinations of five deacons in the presence of their family, the religious, and faithful by Archbishop Thumma Bala, on December 21 at Don Bosco Shrine, Bandlaguda, Hyderabad.
Deacons Boddu Charan Kumar, Gandala Simharayulu, Kalakoti Ramesh, Kalukula Rajesh and Talari Sanjay, were ordained priests, in the Bicentenary year of the birth of Don Bosco, as a sign of gratitude towards the great saint Don Bosco.

The deacons were solemnly accompanied by their parents to the altar, as a sign of complete surrender and sacrifice. The faces of deacons were aglow while they were receiving the priesthood of Christ.

"Priesthood is a total surrender. Every priest ought to become humble like Christ in forming people. To become a priest, means to become a sacrificial lamb to the Lord," said Bishop Bala in his sermon. He exhorted the priests to follow the path and values of the Gospel and not of the world.

There were around 800 people gathered for the occasion. Father Raminedi Balaraju, the Provincial and Father Joji Reddy, the Vice Provincial along with their team members, planned and executed the priestly ordinations.

Father Charan- one of the newly ordained priests- expressed his sentiments of gratitude and said, "I would try to become more humble day by day and grow more like Christ in my words and deeds. I am very happy with all my confreres for their love and appreciation."

A short felicitation programme was arranged after the Holy Eucharist for the ordained priests.
