Archbishop Virgilio do Carmo da Silva, SDB was the celebrant. Fr Carlito Da Costa Araújo (Provincial Delegate for Timor-Leste) represented Fr Paul Cahill (Prior Provincial) who was unable to attend due to COVID-19 restrictions. For the past year Donato has been a member of our community at Coorparoo (QLD), studying English and exercising his ministry as a deacon before returning to Timor-Leste in July. Congratulations, Donato!
