Three New Jesuit Deacons from Malaysia

Jesuit diaconate ordination

On the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (September 8, 2012), 17 Jesuit scholastics were ordained to the diaconate at the Church of the Gesu on the campus of the Ateneo de Manila University. Among the 17 were three Malaysian Jesuits - Sebastian Koh (Johor), Mark Aloysius (Sibu) and Alvin Ng (Kuching). Mark and Alvin have been in the Society of Jesus for 10 years and Sebastian for 9.

We congratulate our new reverend deacons! Praise be to God!
