The Australian end of the province of Mary Help of Christians is preparing for the priestly ordination of Rev. Martin Tanti SDB.
Martin will be ordained a priest on 28thAugust 2010 at St. Margaret Mary’s church in North Brunswick at 3:30pm by Most Rev. Tim Costelloe SDB DD. He would like to see as many of his friends as possible on his great day. He also extends his general invitation for all to join him as he celebrates the Mass of Thanksgiving on the following day at the same place at 10:30 am. Of course, the refreshments will be served after both liturgical events in the parish hall.
Martin and his family have been waiting for this weekend for almost twenty years. Martin, who was educated at the Salesian college in Sunbury, joined the Salesians in Oakleigh in 1992. Apart from his usual studies for an education degree and the bachelor of Theology, Martin has been involved in teaching, running the youth centre in Brunswick, and in many other Salesian youth activities. Currently, Martin directs the Goyura Salesian Retreat Centre at Lysterfield in Victoria while ministering as a deacon.
All SNAP readers and friends of the province are invited to join Martin on his ordination to the priesthood and the Mass of Thanksgiving.
