He has also been actively involved in the formation and education ministry of the congregation. Unassuming and ever ready to reach out to those in need, our new parish priest has a cheerful and positive personality equipped with enthusiasm and untiring service. True to all the makings of a Redemptorist, his tenure here at Holy Ghost is sure to take the Parish to greater heights.
Again the Assistant Parish Priest, is an able and perfect associate the parish priest could have hoped for in the parish team. With a Masters in Social Science (MSW) from the prestigious Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, he is both a well-read man and a deep thinker.

In addition, he also has teaching experience at St. Joseph’s College, Bangalore, making him a wholly rounded person. His last two assignments as the pioneer and Parish Priest of the Holy Redeemer Parish at Sadupadesha and a Missionary in Bolivia where he excelled both as a clergy and a missionary, are indeed feathers on his cap which he can be proud of ! Simple, friendly and approachable Fr. Lawrence greets all who come to him with kindness and humility. He is sure to make an impact on us and leave us as better Christians with his example.
