WE ARE PLEASED to announce that on Saturday, November 20th, 21 members of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary will receive orders by His Excellency bishop Robert Finn in the seminary chapel of Saints Peter and Paul. In this special occasion, there are fourteen ordinandi to the Minor Orders of Porter, in which they will receive the office to summon Christians to prayer and guard God’s temple against intruders, and Lector, in which they will receive the duty to read sacred texts in the liturgy and catechize children and the uneducated.

Also, six ordinandi will receive the Orders of Exorcist and Acolyte, to purify themselves and God’s Church of all impurity, moreover, in receiving the order of acolyte, they thereby gain a nearer proximity to the Blessed Sacrament, closely collaborating with the ministry of the subdeacon. Acolytes are called to “cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light” (Rom 13:12). They ought to “shine as lights in the world” (Phil 2:15) through holiness of life in imitation of their divine Savior..

Additionally, there will be one ordinand receiving the Major Order of the Diaconate. As the apostles ministered to Our Lord, so the Deacon ministers to the Bishop and his priests in their ministry of sanctifying souls and in the liturgy. The Diaconate impresses an eternal sacramental character upon the soul the and confers grace ex opere operato. He remains a Deacon both in this life and the life to come.

Due to the large size of the classes and the number of invited guests, both the ceremony and the reception are not open to the public.

There will be a live broadcast for all those unable to attend. 


Please pray for the Ordinandi.
