Five young men who have decided to dedicate their lives to the church will be ordained as priests at a special Holy Mass to be held at San Thome Cathedral in San Thome on April 3, Sunday evening.
These five men, all belonging to the diocese of Madras-Mylapore have undergone many years of spiritual and academic training and have served at various churches as deacons and are now on the threshold of being ordained.
The ordination will be carried out by Rev Dr George Antonysamy, archbishop of Madras-Mylapore diocese.
Among the five is a San Thomite, Grieth Mathews.
Fr Mathias, parish priest of the cathedral says a large number of priests of the diocese are expected to take part in this religious event.
