Priestly Ordination of Rev Libin Machingal

18.06.2021 - “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 2, 5

Harvest Master continues to shower his bountiful blessing to St. Thomas Quasi Province. Today, on June 17 2021, His grace Bishop Pauly Kannookadan, Prelate of Irijalakuda diocese, ordained Rev Libin Machingal to the Sacred Order of Priesthood.

Due to Covid 19 social restrictions, only 20 people could participate in this blessed celebration. Yet, the solemnity of the celebration was its finest way in this wonderfully decorated St Mary’s church, Nellayi. The graceful presence of Bishop Kannookadan, well-organized celebration of ordination rite and active participation of the choir made the event more significant. The celebration continued with the First Holy Mass presided over by Fr Libin and five priests joined him in this concelebrated Holy Eucharist. All gathered thanked and praised God for His marvelous blessing to the Church and to the Congregation.
