If you ever get a glimpse of heaven especially on the 24th of May you will see what a real party looks like. Don’t be shocked if you see Salesian organizing it and having a ball of a time!
If you’re wondering what could be the reason…it is the Professions! Of course! Some temporary, some perpetually and some celebrating their jubilees!
It is a day of rejoicing and celebration of blessing and of good cheer. The same is true here at SHTC, Nashik. In the presence of the Provincial Sr. Rita Dora Thomas, four novices Sr. Jennifer Macwan, Sr. Rani Pandit, Sr. Khushboo Vasava, Sr. Prezy Parmar said their first ‘yes’ –Yes to God and Yes to Holiness. After four – five years of preparation and formation; they have chosen to be the brides of Christ. A life of excitement as well as challenges, a life that brings joy and satisfaction!
Our very own four sisters, all looking elegant, draped in saris as well as ten STI novices donned in immaculate white cassocks and shirts, pronounced their vows at Don Bosco Parish, Nashik. The Eucharistic celebration along with its liturgical animation and singing raised our hearts in thanksgiving. It was a solemn yet lively celebration and all participated with much fervor.
The main celebrant Rev. Fr. Godfrey D’Souza, SDB, in his homily exhorted the newly professed to have a passionate love for Jesus and no other and to be willing to give themselves wholeheartedly and zealously to the mission.
Our spiritual hunger having been satisfied we proceeded to the hall for a fellowship lunch where all interacted and wished the parents and relatives of the newly professed. It was indeed a great day and a much greater one in heaven for sure!
