Hyderabad, Apr. 19.

Salesian Province of St Joseph loses yet another stalwart and a pioneer who toiled relentlessly in the Lord's vineyard. Father Thattil Chacko, sdb, aged 81 died while being treated at Vijay Marie Hospital on 19 April 2022. He suffered from severe Parkinson’s disease for almost 20 years. He was active and effective in his ministry serving the people entrusted to his care to the best of his ability. His mission in Ravulapalem, Mariapuram and Odisha speaks volumes about his pastoral zeal for souls and for God's greater glory.

Father Chacko made his 1st profession on 24 May 1962 at Yercaud and his final profession on 24 May 1968 at Yercaud. His 60 years of Salesian life was a genuine testimony of his loyalty and devotion to God and to the Congregation. He took the Salesian missionary spirit to greater heights by treading a path less travelled and by enduring to the end. He showed the way to heaven by living out his daily life through incessant hard work and prayer. His death is a great loss for the Province. May his soul rest in peace.
