Sunday, 23 August 2015, in the Parish Church of St. John the Baptist, Sananduva (RS), took place the priestly ordination of the religious of the Josephites of Murialdo Dhian Paul Paiz. The celebration was presided by the Auxiliary Bishop of Belém do Pará, Bishop Irenaeus Roman (which is also a Josephite) and concelebrated by the Bishop of Vacaria, Bishop Irenaeus Gassen and dozens of priests.
The event, marked by a lot of emotion and faith, had the parish church crowded by faithful, religious, seminarians, apostolic mothers and members of the Family of Murialdo.
The first Mass of the newly ordained priest will be celebrated on Sunday, August 30th, in his community – St. John da Forquilha (Sananduva).
Fr. Dhian Paul Paiz will continue his Master’s studies in Moral Theology in Rome.
We offer our unceasing prayer for the intentions of Dhian and thank the Good Shepherd who continues to send labourers into his harvest in the charism of Saint Leonard Murialdo.
