OLPH Parish extends a warm welcome to Father Sathia and Father Jojo. Father Sathia and Father Jojo join our parish community from India. Some of you may have noticed the letters behind the priests’ name. What do those mean? Those letters indicate the order that our priests belong to. Our diocesan priests, like Father Jim, do not have these letters.

Father Sathia belongs to the Salesian order as indicated by the letters SDB following his name. Father Jojo belongs to the Pallotine order as indicated by the letters SAC following his name.
