Ordination Ceremony of Minor and Major Orders in the Diocese of Puttur

Date:

Puttur: The Diocese of Puttur witnessed a significant event on 20th May 2024, as four seminarians were conferred with various minor and major orders at a solemn ceremony held at 6 AM. The ordinations were conducted by H.E. Most Rev. Dr. Geevarghese Mor Makarios, with the presence of the Vicar General, Very Rev. Fr. Eldho Puthenkandathil, among other priests.

Ordinations and Roles

  • Bro. Augustine Pulivanyoor was ordained to M’shamshono (Major Order).
  • Bro. Savio Puthenveettil was ordained to Hevupadiyakno (Minor Order).
  • Bro. Agnetius Ettikkal was ordained to Hevupadiyakno (Minor Order).
  • Bro. Samuel Cheruvila was ordained to M’samrono (Minor Order).

Understanding the Orders

M’shamshono (Deacon)

The M’shamshono, or deacon, is a vital role within the Church, assisting bishops and priests in liturgical services, proclaiming the Gospel, and engaging in charitable works. This position signifies a deep commitment to the spiritual and community life of the Church, serving as a bridge between the clergy and the laity.

Hevupadiyakno (Sub-deacon)

The order of Hevupadiyakno, or Sub-deacon, is a major order in the Eastern rites. Sub-deacons assist the deacon and priest in the preparation of the altar and the sacred vessels. They also help in maintaining the decorum of the sanctuary during the liturgy, ensuring that the liturgical practices are carried out with precision and reverence.

M’samrono (Reader)

The order of M’samrono, or Reader, is another minor order. Readers are entrusted with the responsibility of proclaiming the Scriptures during liturgical services, except for the Gospel. This role underscores the importance of the Word of God in the life of the Church, calling the faithful to engage deeply with the Scriptures.

Significance of the Ceremony

This ordination ceremony marks a pivotal moment in the lives of the newly ordained, as they step into roles that are integral to the liturgical and spiritual life of the Church. The presence of clergy and the community highlights the collective support and encouragement for these young men as they continue their journey in service to the Church.

The Diocese of Puttur extends its heartfelt congratulations to Bro. Augustine Pulivanyoor, Bro. Savio Puthenveettil, Bro. Agnetius Ettikkal, and Bro. Samuel Cheruvila. The community prays for their continued dedication and service to the Church, looking forward to their contributions to the spiritual growth and enrichment of the faithful.
