Tiruchy, Dec. 18. Dn. Dominic Savio of the Tiruchy Salesian Province was ordained a priest on December 17, 2011 at Infant Jesus Cathedral, Salem. Bishop Singarayon of Salem was the ordaining minister.
''My long cherished dream has finally come true,'' said Fr. Dominic Savio SDB immediately after his ordination as he thanked the people who participated in the celebration and prayed for him. It was a momentous day not only in the life of Fr. Dominic Savio SDB, but for his family and INT province as well. Bp. Singarayon, bishop of Salem, ordained him a priest. In his homily the bishop beautifully explained the role of the priest and his role in the society. He called on all the priests who were present and the newly ordained priest to follow the justice of God than the justice of the world.
Thanks to Fr. Singarayon, parish priest of the Infant Jesus Cathedral, who saw to the details and organized the liturgy in a manner befitting the celebration. All those who participated in the ordination ceremony were appreciative of the decorum with which it was conducted.
More than sixty priests, both Salesians and Diocesans, participated in the celebration and prayed for the newly ordained. Mr. Rayappan, father of Fr. Dominic Savio, thanked God for the twin blessings - two of his sons have become priests - he has received.  Fr. Thomas Aquinas SDB, the elder brother of Fr. Dominic Savio, is also a Salesian priest for the province of Hyderabad.
