On January 4 died Ashok Mariyanna, young Piarist aspirant of the Viceprovince of India, in an accident while he was on a tractor, working in the field, during his holidays of Christmas with his family.

Ashok was 18 years old and natural of Kadapa (Andra Pradesh). He was in his first year as aspirant, at the beginning of his Piarist life.

Let’s pray for him that the Lord grant him the fullness of the life he had always dreamed of. Let’s also pray for his family and the whole of the Viceprovince.

Rest in peace.
