Ordination Saturday June 5 10 am May 26, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in awesomeness, Dallas Diocese, General Catholic, North Deanery.

Last year, if I recall correctly, only one new priest was ordained at the Cathedral.  This year, with God’s great blessing, two young men will be ordained to the priesthood – Marco Rangel and John Szatkowski.  Both young priests will be assigned to Plano – soon to be Fr. Rangel at St. Mark and Fr. Szatkowski at St. Elizabeth Seton.   The ordinationas will be celebrated at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe at 10 am on June 5.  There will be a reception following.  If you plan on attending, I strongly recommend getting there at least an hour early, if not more, in order to be seated within the Cathedral itself, and not in the overflow space.

What a great blessing.  After some recent years when no young men were ordained, last year we had one, this year two, and next year there will, prayerfully, be three.  Let the vocations continue to grow at that rate!  This diocese needs to ordain about 3 men per year just to cover attrition, let alone grow, so we must pray for this trend to not only continue, but accelerate. 

This ordination may be televised.  If so, I will link that when I get that information. 

Let us pray for continued growth in vocations to the priesthood and religious life!  And let us pray for a great strengthening in the vocation of marriage, the source of all priests and religious!

Dominus vobiscum!
