Deacon Avinash D’Souza was ordained a priest by Archbishop Peter Macahdo at St Joseph’s Boys High School oratory on September 30. The ceremony was witnessed by a congregation of Jesuits, religious, and close and extended family members and friends of Fr Avinash.
The solemn celebration commenced with eucharistic celebration led by the Archbishop. In his homily, Fr Leo Florance SJ articulated a priest's role as a shepherd, emphasising that this calling carries its own set of challenges. He also stressed the priest's vulnerability, contrasting it with the unwavering strength derived from an all-powerful God. The choir was led by the JFCT scholastics.
