15 Men receive the Ministry of Reader

During this first week of Advent, fifteen men received the Ministry of Reader.  The Most Reverend Edward Bernard Scharfenberger, Bishop of Albany, joined us as the Principal Celebrant.  Very Rev. Brian Kiely (Rector), Rev. Paul Miceli (Vice Rector), Seminary leaders, faculty and invited priests concelebrated. It was a joyful celebration!

This ceremony marks an important step towards ordination for these men. Though they may have been readers in their own parishes, now they encounter God's Word in a deeper sense. They will proclaim the Scriptures and embrace the role of teachers of God's Word.

Join us as we congratulate them and give thanks to God, Who continues to strengthen the Church for the future.  Please pray for these men, and for all of their brothers at the Seminary, as they prayerfully walk the road to ordination.
