Tiruchy, Dec. 31. Three deacons viz. Ashok Lawrence, Mohan Christuraj and Suresh Felix were ordained deacons by Rev. Antony Devotta D.D., bishop of Trichy at AMSAM, Tiruchy on 29 Dec 2011.
Thanks to the geographical position of Tiruchy that the ordination of three of its deacons went on without any hitch. Coastal districts of Tamil Nadu were facing the brute force of the Thane cyclone around the same time as the ordination ceremony was being conducted in the landlocked Tiruchy. By the time it reached Tiruchy Thane lost its ferocity and became just a gust of wind. And the time taken by Thane to cover the distance helped all those who participated in the ordination ceremony to get back to the safety of their homes.
The tone inside the AMSAM campus was completely different from the atmosphere that prevailed outside it. Everyone sulked and tried to reach their homes early as Tamil Nadu was gearing up to weather the Thane cyclone. But AMSAM wore a festive outlook and was buzzing with activity. Mellifluous music and bright lights matched the sound and light produced by the overcast sky.
The ordination ceremony, which began around 6 pm was a simple and profound celebration. Angelic singing of the Lalgudi choir led by Fr. George Chinnappan added solemnity to the liturgical celebration.
This year is 'high five' year for INT as it rejoices at the ordination of five of its deacons as priests. Dn. Dominic Savio and Dn. Bernard Moses were ordained earlier at Salem and Chennai respectively. All the new priests who were ordained in the preceding days in the provinces of INM, INT and INH were present in Tiruchy to pray for their companions partake in their joyous moment. Kudos to the AMSAM community for the exhaustive arrangements they had made.
