On May 7 at 9:00 a.m. our deacon Mathew Uzhuthinamalayil was ordained priest in his own parish of Kiliyarkandam, which is over 80 kilometers from Kappadu, in the diocese of Idikki. Bishop Mar John Nellikkunnel, the newly consecrated Bishop of Idikki, conferred the priestly Ordination on him. The Ordination was immediately followed by the First Mass celebrated by the newly ordained priest. Several other priests, including some members of Kappadu joined him as concelebrants. Practically all the members of the community participated in the Ordination as well as in the First Mass.
