Archbishop Cordileone Ordains to the Minor Orders and Diaconate

November 25, 2013

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San FranciscoThe Most Reverend Salvatore Joseph Cordileone, Archishop of San Francisco, traveled to Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Nebraska on Saturday, November 23, 2013, in order to ordain to the Minor Orders seminarians of the Fraternity, and raise three men to the Diaconate:

  • Mr. Daniel Heenan
  • Mr. Joshua Curtis
  • Mr. Zachary Akers

We express our thanks and gratitude to Archbishop Cordileone for his support of the Fraternity recently, in offering our Solemn Pontifical 25th Anniversary Mass in San Diego, and now for his conveyance of Minor and Major Orders in Denton.

The process of ordination began on Friday, as the three Subdeacons made their Assumption of Celibacy, recited the Profession of Faith, and took the Oath of Fidelity in the presence of Archbishop Cordileone. The next morning came the lengthy ceremony wherein each of the four Minor Orders and then the Major Order of the Diaconate were conveyed.

We send our congratulations to the families of the newly ordained Deacons and the seminarians who received the Minor Orders of Porter, Lector, Exorcists and Acolyte, and thank all of the family and friends that were present to celebrate this joyous occasion with us. The Fraternity asks that all of our supporters please pray for these three men during their Diaconal period, and for our seminarians who receive Minor Orders as they continue their path to the Priesthood.

Additional coverage of this year’s ordinations will be in our upcoming Newsletter.
