Kolkata, May. 30. Darjeeling, known as the producer of arguably the best quality tea in India, has produced 12 Salesians for 03 provinces under the care of Father Samuel Mondal, the Novice Master and his team. The novices made their 1st religious profession at Nazareth Bhavan, Dhajea Busty on 24 May 2020. 06 of the newly professed belong to Kolkata province [INC], 04 to Guwahati province [ING] and 03 to New Delhi province [INN].
The newly professed Salesians were the 40th batch of the novices from Nazareth Bhavan Novitiate. Father George Thadathil, Principal of Salesian College Sonada, was delegated by the Provincial of Kolkata to receive the religious vows of the novices.  Father George Tharayil from the Salesian Province of Delhi and Bro Jose Puthenpurackal stood as the 02 official witnesses at the solemn occasion in the presence of 13 priests of the neighbouring Salesian communities.

The student brothers from Sonada and nuns from the neighbouring communities graced the occasion. The other religious and lay of the neighbourhood too joined in the celebration. Father Raymond Tudu, managed the liturgical rites with vivid direction. The novices themselves prayed in choral rendition in varied cultural melody heard in the provinces of Kolkata, Guwahati and New Delhi. Father Thadathil shared personal reflections basing his homily on the significance of public religious profession.
''Under the able guidance of Father Samuel together with the staff, each detail of this great event was perfectly carried out, despite the pandemic-caused national lockdown,'' said Brother Daniel Hembrom who renewed his religious profession on the occasion.
