Father Kiran Nazareth SDB ordained a Priest
By Fr Francis Xavier
Konkan, Jan. 6. Be a shadow; a witness of God, a mediator for people's intercessions and a man of prayer said Bishop of Udupi Diocese Dr. Gerald Isaac Lobo to Deacon Kiran Nazareth on the occasion of his priestly ordination to the Salesian Province of Panjim at the Holy Cross Church at Byndoor in Udupi district on Tuesday.

The little quite hamlet of Byndoor situated on the boundary of Udupi diocese woke up on 5 January 2016, to greet and accompany the young  Deacon Kiran Nazareth to be ordained a priest of Jesus Christ in the Salesian congregation of the Panjim Province.  

Addressing the people and Deacon Kiran Nazareth the Bishop of Udupi Dr. Gerald Isaac Lobo said, a priest is first and for most chosen by God, called to be a witness, a sign and bearer of His presence and love.  A priest is a bridge between the faithful and their Creator, one who takes from the world upto the heavenly table the peoples aspirations and intercessions, he added.  Calling on Deacon Kiran he said, one can be faithful to the calling only when he devotes his entire self in prayer and contemplation, communicating with God at all times and understanding His Will as Jesus did.

Provincial of Panjim Salesiasn Province Father Ian Figueiredo at the felicitation, thanked the parents of Father Kiran, Mr Leo and Mrs Irene Nazareth for the gift of their son to the service in the Lord's vineyard.  He also expressed his gratitude to the parish priest and the member of Saint Joseph ward for joyfully welcoming Father Kiran and organizing the ordination.

Father Kiran personally thanked and expressed his gratitude through flowers and garlands beginning with his dear parents and all those individuals who helped him become a priest of Christ.
Twenty four Salesian priests, two Salesian Lay Brothers from the province of Panjim and a host of religious, relatives, benefactors and well-wishers from in around Byndoor participated in the ordination function as Father Kiran Nazareth made firm his resolution to follow the Lord more closely with his motto, My Life for Youth.
