Last Sunday, 17 October, our Fr. Prakash celebrated his First Mass in the Piarist Church of Maria Treu in Vienna. Many faithful and especially many children had accepted the invitation to Maria Treu to rejoice with the new priest.

In his welcome speech, the General Delegate of the Piarists and parish priest of Maria Treu, Fr. Jean de Dieu Tagne, thanked Fr. Prakash for now placing himself entirely at the service of the people and the Piarists.

The homily was given by the Dean of Students of the Pontifical College in Heiligenkreuz, Msgr. Rupert Stadler. Fr. Rupert spoke about the path of a priest and his coming tasks. Especially the sentence “I am ready” is of great importance for every priest.

After the Mass, the Piarists offered a lunch in the summer refectory of Maria Treu.

Dear Father Prakash, we wish you all the best and God’s rich blessing for your work!
