“The priesthood is not an occupation; it is not a job; it is not an employment. It is not even a profession. It is the most sublime vocation to which God can call man. “ ~ Fr. John Hardon, S.J.
We are happy to announce the upcoming ordination to the sacred Priesthood of our two Friars, Rev. Br. John Paul Mary, MFVA and Rev. Br. Paschal Mary Mary, MFVA on June 22, 2013!! Please join your prayers with ours for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on our two brothers, as they enter into the last ‘stretch’ of preparation for Holy Orders. Father Hardon’s words should remind us what a gift the Holy Priesthood is to mankind. Imagine this world without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the forgiveness of our sins in the Sacrament of Penance, not being able to go to our Churches and spend time with Our Lord in Eucharistic Adoration… our hearts should shout for joy over the gift of two more priests. Our Lady, Queen of the Clergy – pray for our priests and protect them always!
