Ministry of Acolyte - Dec. 6, 2017

We were delighted to have The Most Reverend Joseph C. Bambera of the Diocese of Scranton, PA, with us as Principal Celebrant at the Ministry of Acolyte for the Class of 2021. The installation was held on Dec. 6, 2017.

The ministry of Acolyte is one of service at the altar. Think of the man who brought the scroll to Jesus in the synagogue or the boy whose loaves and fishes provided the food that Our Lord multiplied for thousands, or Joseph of Arimathea who provided the tomb and linens for the burial of the crucified Christ. It's a ministry of attentive service and love.

The ministry of Acolyte brings these seminarians closer to their full commitment to the Church at ordination. We're grateful they have responded to God's call to serve!
