Announcement: Ordinations to the Subdiaconate, Minor Orders, & Clerical Tonsure

July 21, 2017
Order of the Subdiaconate, the First of the Major Orders

There is a change of dates for the upcoming ordinations in August.

Instead of having the conferral of Clerical Tonsure on 16 August, this ceremony will be merged with the ceremony of the preceding day, the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady.

Hence, on August 15, the seminarians will receive ordinations to the Subdiaconate, Minor Orders, and Clerical Tonsure.

You are all invited to participate on this joint ceremony.

Please keep the ordinands in your prayers as they prepare for these important steps to the Priesthood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
