Adigrat: October, the month of Rosary, was begun with a great gift of the Blessed Mother, as a son of the Northern Ethiopia, Dn. Aron was ordained a priest in the Parish of Alitena his native land on 1st of October. Dn. Aron was a student of the Theologicum at Jerusalem for the past four years. He was ordained a deacon in the summer of 2016, and had been greatly longing for this great day in his life. Even though initially it was thought to have the ordination in July, as there were two other ordination of the Lazarists from the same parish of Alitena, it was decided to be held together in the month of October.
The three deacons were ordained by Mons. Tesfaselassie Medhin, the Eparch of the Adigrat Eparchy. Dn. Aron, who had chosen the Biblical Phrase, "You did not Choose me, But I chose you", made it explicable in his Thanksgiving homily, that the Almighty had directed him and guided in his Vocational journey and that he was extremely grateful to God for the marvellous gift of Priesthood. Abba Aron, will shortly join the community of Debrezeit, as in charge of the Oratory and will assist the Novice Master in the coming academic year.
