A Worker for the Harvest

Kopakka – June 27th was a great day for Ankanagudem in the West Godavari District of Sacred Heart Parish as Devarapalli Ravi Kumar, 27 year old son of Gabriel & Vijaya Kumari, was ordained a priest for the diocese of Eluru, in Nirmalagiri from His Lordship Jaya Rao Polimera. Our new priest has a younger sister and brother, yet we predict he will be an inspiration for many more young people throughout his ministry. He celebrated his first Mass on July 2nd. He is the first priest from that village making it a great celebration and edification of the faith for the people. The Servants of Charity collaborated for his first thanksgiving Mass with nearly 40 priests concelebrating. Our seminarians from Koppaka assisted as servers. After Mass there was a celebration to honor Fr. Ravi and his family. It was followed by dinner for all.
His priestly Motto is “My life should become a grace to the shepherd of the diocese as well as to the people of God.”
