We give thanks to God on the occasion of the Ordination to the Sacred Priesthood of Fr. Luc Poirier by the Most Reverend Terrence Prendergast, Archbishop of Ottawa. In addition to a number of priests and seminarians from the Seminary traveling to Ottawa for the ceremony, three of Fr. Poirier’s classmates recently ordained in Nebraska attended. During the Ordination, these newly ordained priests, along with the Bishop and the other attending priests, conferred the form of the Sacrament upon their classmate through the laying on of hands. This ceremony is a powerful symbol of the unity of the Priesthood and particular joyous one for our new priests at the climax of their seminary career. 

Please pray for Fr. Poirier as he begins his priestly duties that he may serve God as a worthy and holy priest.
