Four other deacons – Avinash Lobo, Praveen Martis, Royston Pinto and Vishwas Misquith - were ordained priests by Bishop Peter Paul Saldanha on October 10th in St Aloysius PU College Loyola Hall, Mangaluru. The number of Jesuits, priests and laity who attended the ceremony and the felicitation programme was just over a hundred; but thanks to the live streaming of the programme on Daijiworld and the Province YouTube many more could prayerfully witness the event. The entire ceremony was meticulously planned and executed by the Loyola Pre-Novitiate team beginning with the director Fr Pradeep Crasta, assisted by Sch. Joswin Pereira and the pre-novices, with the cooperation of the PCF Fr Francis Fernandes, the Jesuits of SAC Community and the scholastics from Asha Kiran. Sch. Ovin Rodrigues was the Master of Ceremonies. The presence and message of the new Provincial Fr Dion Vaz was an inspiration to all present but particularly to the newly-ordained.
