Mekanissa – Addis Abeba: The Vice-province of AET is in jubilation as two of its deacons, Dn. Asmare Legesse and Dn. Desta Welde were ordained priests on 17 November 2018. The event was organized at the Salesian Community of Don Bosco Mekanissa, Addis Abeba in the beautiful shrine of Mary Help of Christians. The two deacons were ordained by Bishop Roberto Bergamaschi SDB, the Vicar Apostolic of Hawassa Vicariate.
The deacons had successfully completed their Theological Studies at the Salesian Theologate of Ratisbonne, Israel and had been already assigned to the communities of Gambella and Adamittullu respectively. Several friends, well-wishers and family members attended the prayerful ceremony in which the newly ordained priests too expressed their gratitude to God and to the Congregation for all the love and care that they have received throughout the formation time. After a few days of thanksgiving Masses in the various communities of the vice province they will be back to their respective communities to begin their apostolic activity assigned to them. We accompany them with our prayers.
