By Sarah Malcore
St. Francis Xavier Cathedral overflowed with friends and family of Carl Schmitt and Brian Belongia and others from across the Green Bay Diocese who came to celebrate the ordination of the Two Rivers' men to the priesthood.
Bp. David Zubik, along with Bp. Robert Banks, Bp. Aloysius Wycislo, Bp. Mark Schmitt, Bp. Robert Morneau, Archabbot Justin DuVall and 12 priests participated in a May 21 Ordination Mass, rich in tradition and ritual.
After four years of college and four more years in the seminary - at Mundelein Seminary in Mundelein, Ill. (Fr. Belongia), and St. Meinrad Seminary in St. Meinrad, Ind. (Fr. Schmitt), the two have begun their service to the diocese.
The bishops, priests, several deacons and the two ordinands began the Mass with a procession into the cathedral.
The Rite of Ordination started when Fr. Doug LeCaptain, diocesan vocations director for formation, testified to Bp. Zubik that the candidates are ready to undertake the ministry of priesthood. Bp. Zubik accepted the recommendation and told the men they have been chosen for the Order of Priesthood. The entire assembly erupted for more than a minute of thundering applause, signaling their consent.
In his homily, Bp. Zubik said the two "are special men and I have been inspired by both through my interactions with them at social occasions and my trips to the seminary." Full story ...
