Reflection: Dcn. Valanarasu Williamraj

October 29, 2020

I began my ministry in St. Ambrose and St. Mark collaborative at Dorchester. As Transitional Deacon, I would like to serve the people of God in all possible ways. I look forward to proclaiming the Gospel and preach effectively what I believe. Though my parents and friends could not join me in person at my ordination ceremony, they are extremely happy about me. Now I moved closer to the altar of God. Every Holy Mass in which I serve, I pray for the intentions of my family and friends. I also gratefully remember my diocese in Tamil Nadu for the opportunity to serve in the Archdiocese of Boston. I am eagerly preparing further to celebrate the Holy Eucharist for the people as the Priest of God.

Rev. Mr. Valanarasu Newton Williamraj is a seminarian from the Diocese of Kumbakonam and was ordained a Transitional Deacon on October 24, 2020.
