On April the 6th, 13 new deacons were ordained in Rome for the Society of Jesus. As deacons they have become ministers of the Church and as such are called “...to read the Sacred Scripture to the faithful, to instruct and exhort the people...” (Lumen Gentium).
One of these new deacons is Nirmal Minj, a Jesuit from the Ranchi Province in India. A few weeks after the ordination he had the opportunity to announce the Gospel and preach for the first time to his
Jesuit brothers in the community of the Collegio Internazionale del Gesù.
