Nine Lives…Changed



The kids and I watched the livestream of the Rite of Ordination of Priests held today at The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Milwaukee. Nine men were ordained! 

(This happens to be the biggest ordination class for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in 30 years, Praise the Lord!)

Oh MY, what a beautiful gift it was to my soul to witness this Sacrament of Holy Orders online. It was a new experience for me.

We enjoyed all of the many aspects to this very special Mass. I’m not sure which part was my favorite. It might have been this moment (captured by taking a photo of the TV, sorry for the fuzzy lines) when they lie prostrate. This was also when they prayed for the intercessory prayers of SO many saints. Powerful!

I highly recommend catching the replay here…

Our prayers will continue to be with these nine new priests in our Archdiocese, in order from left to right, top down (pic below).

Father Dennis Beltré, Father Nicholas Dhein, Father Kevin Durand, Father Zachary Galante, Father Denny Jacob, Father Dominic Lazzaroni, Father Charles Luke, Father Craig Richter, Father David Sweeney. Learn more about them here.

And, of course, we are excited as a family to welcome Father Dennis Beltré as the new Associate Pastor of the North Sheboygan Parishes next month!

May the Holy Spirit guide these holy priests, and may Mother Mary be with them daily as they courageously lead our Church!

To God be the glory!!
