Ordinations in Winona are today

Today in Winona, Minnesota, seven new priests will be ordained for the Society of Saint Pius X.

Again, congratulations and thank you to the men who are dedicating their lives to serving God.  We are immensely grateful to you.

I very much wanted to be present for these ordinations, which are historic in that they will be the last ordinations to take place in Winona. Winona is only a 7 hour drive for me, but work responsibilities require me to stay in central Illinois.

Starting next year, ordinations will take place at the new seminary building in Dillwyn, Virginia.

Schedule for the day (from the webpage):

9:00am   Pontifical Mass by Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta

Lunch: the seminary will be unable to offer a buffet lunch to all as in the past

2nd Vespers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Benediction

7:00pm  Banquet at the Seminary with slide-show (28 years of memories)

9:00pm  Candlelit Procession of Thanksgiving to Our Lady and Compline

For those who cannot attend, Magnificat Media will be present, so you can listen to Mike and Lisa Austin throughout the day to get updates.
