ORDAINED IN THE YEAR OF FAITH
An article written by the Most Reverend Paul S. Loverde for the Arlington Catholic Herald
How blessed we were to celebrate the ordination of seven new diocesan priests this past Saturday! After many years of discernment and formation, these men said their definitive and permanent “yes” to their God-given call to act “in the Person of Christ” as sharers in His ministerial priesthood through the Sacrament of Holy Orders. It is truly significant for both these newly ordained and our entire diocesan family that their priestly ordination took place during the Year of Faith. Why?
Effective June 26, Bishop Loverde ordained seven new priests at the Cathedral of St. Thomas More. Please join with us in prayer for these fine men as they set to begin their first assignments. The Bishop also announced clergy changes for the diocese. May the Lord bless our clergy!
