Varanasi, India: Priestly Ordination Satyendra Kumar MHM
Deacon Satyendra Kumar mhm, was ordained on 26th of April 2023 by Most. Rev. Eugene Joseph, the Bishop of Varanasi Diocese in St. Mary’s Cathedral of his Home Diocese of Varanasi along with a Diocesan Deacon Lawrence.
It was a wonderful and colourful celebration. Paulson, Sleevaraj and myself represented the Mill Hill Missionaries.
It was attended by all the priests of the Diocese of Varanasi and nearly 800 faithful participated and witnessed the occasion.
in his homily, Bishop Eugene Joseph spoke to the ordinandi that they must be grateful to God for having called, chosen and consecrated them to be his servants in the service of his people.
Therefore, he urged them to model their lives after the example of Christ, the servant of servants who emptied himself and became one of us that we may share in his glory. Hence he called on the candidates to employ themselves in the service of God’s people so that they may be instruments and channels of God’s grace and blessings wherever they are sent.
Above all, it was so well organized by the Diocese of Varanasi. We have no words than to be grateful to His Lordship Bishop Eugene Joseph and his priests who made it a memorable event for all those who were present.
