Another important and blessed event for the Indian Vice-Province of India as two of our brothers, Br. Shanto George and Br. Karuna, made the solemn profession on March 18 and received the diaconate ordination on March 19.
The solemn profession was celebrated by Rev. Fr. József Urbán, Vice Provincial Superior of India, in the private chapel of our community of Bangalore.
The diaconate ordination was conferred by Most. Rev. Peter Machado D.D., Archbishop of Bangalore, at Kristu Jyothi College chapel. Both celebrations were made privately and simply due to the outbreak of coronavirus.
The family members of these two brothers and other Piarists watched the celebration in live streaming and also joined with them spiritually.
