Kupang City, Indonesia. On May 31, 2017, Feast of the Visitation, 23 deacons were ordained in the Archdiocese of Kupang. Three of them are our Claretian brothers: Agustinus Mbaga, Jefrianus Ulu and Yosep Herman Bataona. The Archbishop of Kupang, Msgr. Petrus Turang, in his message, invited the new deacons to be true servants like the Blessed Virgin Mary who shared God’s grace to those whom she served. Just like whast she did to Elisabeth who experienced the joy of God’s mercy through her. He stressed more on how to let the Holy Spirit lead the servant of God (the deacons) in fulfilling the tasks given to them.
