“Abide in my love.” Jo 15.9b

On August 20, 2022, the Piarists of the Brazil-Bolivia Province celebrated with great joy the priestly ordination of the Piarist religious Deibson Gouvêa, Franck Olivier Koffi and Heyder Vieira da Conceição, in Serra, Espiritu Santo, Brazil.

The Eucharist, presided over by Mgr Dario Campos, Archbishop of Vitoria, and concelebrated by the priests of the Presence of Brazil and diocesan priests, friends of the ordinands, took place in the central square of Feu Rosa, a public space prepared with great affection by the ecclesial communities of the Parish of San José de Calasanz and by the San José de Calasanz Social Center.

Present at the celebration were the relatives and friends of Deibson, Olivier and Heyder, as well as Piarist and Sacramentine religious and lay people from the Piarist presences of Aracaju, Araguaína, Belo Horizonte and Governador Valadares.

We thank God for these young Piarists who answered his call and put themselves at the service of his Kingdom. And let us ask him to protect Deibson, Olivier and Heyder, so that they may reproduce in their lives the feelings and attitudes of Jesus, the Good Shepherd.
