December 10th 2017 was a special day for the Montfortian family, because we six of us namely Arun D’souza, Jayakumar, Gnana Prakash, Bala Raju, Arul Jose Nashwin, Ravi Thappeta got ordainded as deacons by Rev. Bishop William, the Bishop of Mysore. This ceremony took place in Guru Mandir which is our minor seminary situated in Mysore. Our General Councilors Fr. Wismick Jean Charles and Fr. Rozario Menezes were present along with our Provincial Fr. Michael, his Vicar and Provincial Bursar. There were around sixteen priests and about fifty faithful along with our family who actively took part in the celebration.

The bishop in his introduction expressed that it is indeed a Joyful day for the Montfortian family because there are six brothers who have come forward to commit themselves for the service of God and humanity. In his homily he stressed on the significance of being a deacon that is, to proclaim the word of God by being with Jesus and bringing Jesus to others. Secondly to live in the community is to share the love through service by being faithful to our vows.

The day was organized by the Guru Mandir community. We specially thank Fr. Dominic the Rector and Fr. Amalraj the Administrator of the community. Indeed it was a day to remember and cherish in our lives. We thank God for the blessings upon each of us.
