On Ember Saturday this Lent, twelve men came forward to advance along the path to the Priesthood of Christ. The Most Rev. Robert Morlino, Bishop of Madison, Wisconsin, traveled to Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, where, on February 20, 2015, he administered the Subdiaconate to twelve seminarians.
The Subdiaconate conveys the privilege of touching the sacred vessels, chanting the Epistle, and the responsibility of preparing the necessities of the Eucharist. With God’s grace, these men will be raised to the Diaconate in the month of March this year.
Many thanks to Bishop Morlino for his support of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter. In your kindness, please pray for our new subdeacons, as well as all of our seminarians, deacons, and priests here in North America and around the world.
