Mumbai, Dec. 30. On December 29, 2017 Dn James D' Souza received the sacerdotal ordination through the hands of Rt. Rev. Bishop Derek Fernandes, the bishop of Karwar diocese at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Mundalli, Bhatkal.
While elaborating on his theme, ''the Lord who called me, leads me'' the bishop assured Dn James that the Lord will continue to be faithful to him since he has called him for himself. ''...the same Lord who calls, strengthens us always'' he said during his homily. He also spoke about the specialness of the call to priesthood. As a priest there will be many hurdles on the way, but the grace of God is always there to accompany the priest. Fidelity to God and his people is the key to be a happy priest, he added.

After the Solemn Eucharist, there was a short felicitation programme for Father James. During this programme Father James thanked all those who made this day possible. He also fondly remembered his father, who is no more. He requested the gathering to pray for him as he begins this new journey as a priest of God.
