On May 17th our deacon Thomas Thayyil was ordained priest along with his twin brother Dn. Justin in their own parish of Udayagiri in the archdiocese of Thalasserry. The ordaining Prelate was Mar Joseph Pamplani, the newly consecrated Auxiliary Bishop of Thalasserry. The ceremony took place at 9:00 a.m. Since Udayagiri is about 450 kilometers from Kappadu, the community left by a hired bus in the previous evening and reached the place early in the morning. We returned to Kappadu in the same afternoon.
