Bishop will ordain two to priesthood

By | May 23, 2012

Following the procession into the cathedral, Fr. Daniel Schuster, vocation director, will testify to the readiness of the candidates during the Rite of Ordination. The assembly will then show its consent through applause.

The Mass of Ordination also includes:

• Examination of the Candidates and Promise of Obedience.

• Laying on of Hands.

• The Prayer of Consecration.

• Litany of Saints.

• Anointing of their hands with holy chrism.

The candidates officially become priests following the Laying on of Hands and the Prayer of Consecration. Bishop Ricken will present each with a chalice and paten to signify the centrality of the Eucharist in their ministry.

A special section in the June 8 issue of The Compass will include features on the two newly ordained priests and coverage of the Mass of Ordination.
