About Fr. Zevi

Fr. Zevier H. Arockiam, H.G.N.

Fr. Zevier H. Arockiam, H.G.N.

My name is Father Zevier Hirudayaraj Arockiam (Fr. Zevi for short). I and my brother priests belong to a missionary society named the Heralds of Good News (HGN).

I was born in India on September 24, 1967, the seventh of eight children in my family. My mom, two brothers, and two sisters still live in India along with my 13 nieces and nephews (My father, one brother, and two sisters have already passed away). As for my path to the Priesthood, after a long period of searching, discernment, and working as a teacher and catechist at a private school, I joined the seminary in 1997. I became a permanent member of the Heralds of Good News on December 27, 2003 and was ordained a Deacon the next day. I was ordained a Priest on January 17, 2004. I spent my first year of Priesthood teaching in one of our schools before leaving India for the first time In January 2005 to be a missionary in Papua New Guinea until I was sent here to Washington in 2015. One lesson my journey through life has taught me is the virtue of perseverance and the importance of facing new adventures with a committed missionary spirit.
