By Br. Bernard Alfred, SDB


Quetta, Pakistan, 16 June 2017 -- Fr. Samuel Adnan Ghouri, SDB was born in the household of Sadiq Masih and Rehmat Bibi in the small village of Sargodha near Lahore.


He received his basic education from a government school in his home town. After his 10th grade, he worked actively in a youth group in his village. Because of the family’s strong religious influence and his personal interest in the Church’s activities, he experienced God’s call for him to work in His vineyard.


He later joined as a candidate of the Salesian Congregation in 2003 in Lahore. In that same year, he was sent to a Salesian community in Quetta to learn more about living the consecrated life.


On the 10th of June 2007, he went to the Philippines to continue his formation in Don Bosco Formation Center in Lawaan, Talisay City. He spent a year in the Pre-Novitiate formation and another year in the Sacred Heart Novitiate under the guidance of his Novice Director, Fr. Godofredo Atienza, SDB, who is the current Provincial Superior of the Philippines South Province – FIS. He made his first religious profession on the 6th of May, 2009 as a Salesian cleric.


He studied Philosophy for two years in Don Bosco Post Novitiate Seminary in Canlubang, Laguna. He then moved back to Quetta and was assigned in the boarding school as a Practical Trainee for two years.


In 2013, he went back to the Philippines to continue his formation for priesthood as a Theology student in Don Bosco Center of Studies, Parañaque. On his second year, he made his perpetual profession as a Salesian on the 31st of May, 2015. The following year, the 24th of June, he was ordained Deacon.


Culminating his Theology studies, Rev. Samuel returned to Quetta, Pakistan where he was ordained a Priest on the 24th of May, 2017, Feast of Mary Help of Christians.


He is currently serving in Don Bosco Learning School Quetta and in Don Bosco Al-Falah Boy’s Hostel.

    ORDINATION STORY BY Fr. Samuel


    I was ordained on May 24 2017 on the Feast of Our Blessed Mother, Help of Christians at St Pius X Church, Quetta by the laying of the hands of His Excellency Bp. Victor Gnanapragasam, OMI Bishop of Apostolic Vicariate of Quetta in the presence of my family, Fr. Godofredo, FIS Provincial and my Novice Master, Fr. Eugene, Delegate Pakistan, Fr. Joel, Fr. Peter Zago, Fr. Noble, Bros. Francis and Bernard. Together with three families of our Pakistani clerics were present the local faithful among whom i started my journey as a Salesian aspirant in October 2003. I had chosen 

    "REMEMBER, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS" Mathew 28:20 as biblical theme for my ordination. 


    It was a simple but solemn ceremony in which 

    our teachers and students served at the altar and in the choir. 
    Kindly keep me in your prayers that Lord may give me the heart of Good Shepherd and keep me faithful as a minister to his church specially to the care of the youth. 
    Thanks
    In Christ and Don Bosco, 
    Fr Sami, Quetta
