June 22, 2019: Ordinations to the Priesthood! Representatives from two of the seminaries attended by the ordinands--Mount Angel Seminary in Oregon and Mundelein in Chicago--stand on the steps of the Cathedral with Father Gary Lazzeroni.

Archbishop Etienne, our new Coadjutor Archbishop, enters the Cathedral.

"Do you promise respect and obedience to me and my successors?" "I do."

The candidates prostrate themselves before the altar as the Litany of Saints is sung.

The laying on of hands by the Archbishop and the clergy is the heart of the Ordination Rite.

The prayer of ordination

Newly-ordained, Father Ben Bray, Father Tyler Johnson, and Father Carlos Orozco stand before the assembly vested in the chasuble for the first time.

The hands of each priest are anointed with Chrism.

The new priests share a fraternal sign of peace with the priests.

At the conclusion of Mass, each of the new priests offers the Archbishop a blessing.

Congratulations to our new priests! 

Ad multos annos!
