BIS #5846 VOCATION SUNDAY AT ST. ANNE'S AHMEDNAGAR WITH NEW PRIESTS
by Father Vishal Lopes for BISMumbai
The Salesians and the parishioners at St Anne's Church Ahmednagar warmly welcomed MumbaiSalesians' new priests Fathers Clarence Martis and Mavron Fernandes on Sunday 19 January 2020.
Father Fernandes presided at the Eucharist and preached the homily in Marathi saying, "there are many ways to respond to the Lamb of God," and shared how he responded to God's call in his life. After the Eucharist the priests were felicitated by the parishioners. Thanking God for calling him to serve in his vineyard, Father Martis invited the young to "freely respond to God's call and you parents, I urge you to be generous with God as He is to us."
The St Anne's community hopes that this visit of the newly ordained priests will serve as an inspiration for the young people of the parish.
