Sharing faith experiences - II – Fr Santhosh Sebastian
Welcome to our special program on the Year of Faith, THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, a series on the lives of Inspiring People and Witnesses of faith in the Catholic Church from around the world. These are people who lived their ordinary lives in extraordinary ways. Their unique stories inspire us to be rooted in our faith. God calls each one of us to inspire our brothers and sisters and to be witnesses of our faith.
The Faithful Witness of this week is Fr. Santhosh Sebastian from the diocese of Gorakhpur in North India. He had served as Chancellor cum Secretary to Bishop, Parish priest of St. Joseph Cathedral, Principal of St Joseph School, and Director of Commission for Dialogue and Ecumenism. Presently he is appointed as Professor of Dogmatics in St. Joseph Regional Seminary, Allahabad. Fr Santhosh hails from a traditional Catholic family in the Southern Indian state of Kerala. In the second and final part of this interview today he speaks about his experiences with the people of God.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Fr. Santhosh Sebastian from India, shares with us his experience as parish priest, his interaction with the youth and more. Fr. Santhosh welcome back to Vatican Radio.
How was your experience as parish priest in the first parish?
You have been close to the youth, but they appear to be away from the church and present day religious expressions. Your comments.
