After completing his studies, he now looks after the administration of the school as the principal of Andaluri senior high school.
He is a multi-talented Redemptorist, among others especially in the field of music. With an educational background that he has, he gradually tried to improve the standard of education in this school.
Through this celebration of the Silver jubilee, may Fr. Dominic be strengthened and deeply rooted in his vocation and mission in the midst of our wounded world, especially in the field of education.
