On the occasion of Holy Tuesday, Father David Neuhaus, responsible for the Hebrew speaking communities in Israel, celebrated the mass in the presence of Benedetto’s parents, members of the kehillot, the priests of Jerusalem and Beer Sheba, priests from the Salesian School of Theology, seminarians who study with Benedetto and friends. During the mass, Father David bestowed the degrees of lector, proclaiming the Word of God, and acolyte, serving at the altar during mass, to Benedetto, who is studying theology.

We wish Benedetto “mazal tov” and promise to pray for him.
