Witnesses to the Joy of the Gospel: Professions in Hyderabad
By BIS Coordinator
Hyderabad, May. 27. On May 24, 2015, the Salesian Province of Hyderabad was blessed with 17 new Salesians (one of the largest numbers in the recent years) and 6 perpetually professed confreres.  There were also 47 formees who renewed their religious vows a day earlier.  The theme of the celebrations at the first professions in the novitiate at Manoharabad and the final vows at Bandlaguda, was 'Being Joyful Witnesses of the Gospel to love and serve'.

On this occasion each professed member was given a medal in the shape of the cross and the good shepherd moulded on one side and on the other the words 'Learn to make yourself loved'.  Interestingly these were the same words Don Bosco offered to Don Rua the first professed member of the Salesian Society.  

Fr Raminedi Balaraju, the Provincial, stressed on the need to grow in Christ and become truly committed religious.  He also addressed the parents and advised them not to expect any gains from their wards, other than spiritual benefits.  He exhorted them to continually support their sons with their prayers so that they would become holy religious.  

The professed members too expressed their gratitude to the Provincial and the members of the province, especially those of their respective communities for their loving support and guidance over the year. Several confreres from the communities too participated in the perpetual profession ceremony which was hosted by Don Bosco Shrine, Bandlaguda and the Provincial house, Hyderabad.

All the perpetually professed would proceed for their theological studies in due time while those professed would be pursuing their studies in philosophy at Karunapuram, Yercaud and Sonada.
