Mumbai, Dec. 29. Deacon Melwin Ferrao, SDB was ordained a priest on December 28, 2017 by Rt. Rev. Bishop Aloysius Paul D' Souza, the bishop of the diocese of Mangalore during the Solemn Eucharistic celebration at Immaculate Conception Church, Mulki.
During his homily the bishop thanked God for the vocation to the priesthood that he has given to Deacon Melwin as a gift for others. While exhorting him on the same he reminded the words of Pope Francis who said that pastors of the church need to have the smell of the sheep. Which means one needs to develop a strong bond with the people whom God entrusts in one's mission. He also asked the assembly to pray for priests and also for an increase in vocations. As priests, all are called to bear to the humility of Christ who emptied himself of everything.

The Eucharistic celebration was followed by a short felicitation programme for the newly ordained Father Melwin. During the programme Father Felix Fernandes, the Salesian Provincial of the Panjim-Konkan province thanked the parents of Father Melwin as well as the parish community for making this day a success. In his concluding message to the people Father Melwin asked the people to pray for him that he may be holy and a humble priest of God.
