We are excited to welcome Bishop Schneider to confer the Sacrament of Holy Orders for us for the second time – he ordained seven FSSP priests in 2014 at St. Cecilia Cathedral in Omaha. It is also particularly joyful for us to see an FSSP priest ordained at one of our own apostolates, the beautiful church of St. Mary that came under the care of the Fraternity last year. God’s blessings upon our Fraternity continue to be abundant, and we hope you can join us in giving thanks to Him and celebrating the ordination of Deacon Rock this weekend.

*Please come, even if you did not RSVP in time!
