Shillong, 19th February: Ten Salesian new priests (9 for INS and 1 for SLK) were felicitated on 18th February at Sonapahar Parish. The celebration of the New Priests' Day commenced with the Holy Eucharist presided over by the newly ordained Father Sawlus Kharpan. Another newly ordained priest, Father Synsharsuklang Kharsyntiew, delivered the homily, expressing gratitude for the prayers of the faithful and calling on them for continued support. In his homily, Father Synsharsuklang Kharsyntiew drew inspiration from the day's readings, addressing themes of sin, temptation, and the transformative power of Baptism, which grants the grace to sanctify and strive for holiness. The Holy Mass drew attendance from thousands of faithful from Sonapahar Parish, with Father Paul O Lyngkot, the Provincial, Father John Zosiama, the Vice Provincial, and Father Sebastian Tirkey, the Parish Priest of Sonapahar, among the attendees. In total, 40 Salesian priests, including the ten new priests, participated in the ceremony. The gathering also included Salesian brothers, clerics, FMA sisters, and other members of the Salesian family. Following the Holy Mass, a brief felicitation program unfolded, featuring songs, dances, and skits dedicated to honoring the new priests. In his concluding remarks, Father Provincial expressed gratitude to God for the gift of priesthood and, specifically, for the ten new priests added to the province. He encouraged the new priests to remain dedicated and committed to their vocation, while also seeking the ongoing support of the faithful through prayers.
