Born on 27 November 1952, Father Kharjia made his first profession on 24 May 1973, and was ordained a Salesian priest on 17 December 1983.

After his ordination, he was posted at Yerwada, Ahmednagar (St John's and St Anne's), Jaitala, Lonavla and Nashik (novitiate).  He was the Novice Master from 2001 to 2007, and then Rector of DB Yerwada till 2011.
In 2011, he was appointed the Director of the Indian English Academy School in Salmiya, Kuwait.

We recall the words of Don Bosco:
When a Salesian dies working for the young,
the Congregation gains a great triumph in heaven!

RIP Father Francis Kharjia.

In Remembrance of your First Death Anniversary.... Dear Fr. Francis You are one of a kind Still living in Many people’s mind Umpteen times a day Whoever you would meet Even from slight away You would always smile and greet You are like a treasure Within our heart It is our pleasure To know you as thou art So humble and gentle Were your deeds and ways Your true simplicity Had an amazing glaze You were so welcoming And ready to talk Always truthful And never did mock Down to Earth No matter how great You are surely still living Within Heaven’s gate As a counselor Mentor and Guide In you, one could Truly confide Share our thoughts And take your advice Coming to you Made us really feel nice Many still miss And talk about you They say they wish What happened wasn’t due “How far could he be If not so near” I tell them to pray For he is God’s dear Missing a lot Your talks and your ways You are always a thought Even these days Until we meet I await my friend Save me a near seat As I approach the end!!!
