The Seminary and the entire Fraternity rejoices at the ordination of seven men to the Subdiaconate on February 8th by His Excellency Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz, Bishop Emeritus of Lincoln. The ceremony is truly the first big step that these young men take towards the priesthood; in fact, the ceremonies of the Church make this spiritual step explicit by the bishop’s call to the candidates to take a step forward if they are willing to dedicate their lives to the Church. Immediately after making this step, the ordinandi prostrate for the recitation of the litany of the Saints, in which all those present kneel and beseech the heavenly assembly to pray that these men be faithful in the service of God.

Please pray for the seven Subdeacons as they prepare for their ordination to the Diaconate on March 28th.
