Timorese Carmelite, Br Donato De Jesus Marçal, was part of a group of Deacons ordained on 8 July. Bishop Y. Kopong Kung (Bishop of Larantuka) ordained the 10 class-mates at the Carmelite Community in Wairklau, Flores. Donato completed his studies in Flores earlier this year. After a period of pastoral experience in Timor he will be ordained priest.
Our warm congratulations and best wishes go to Donato both for his Ordination as a Deacon and for his further preparation for Priesthood.
