On June 1st, five men from Our Lady of Guadalupe seminary were ordained to the sacred priesthood.
The Missive caught up with one of the new ordinandi, Rev. Fr. David McWhirter, as he returned to northeastern Pennsylvania to spend time with his family, offer Solemn High Mass at St. Michael’s Church in Scranton, and give first blessings to the parishioners.
As part of our Ss. Peter and Paul Appeal on June 29th, we will be debuting an interview with Fr. McWhirter where he discusses his journey through the seminary to the sacred priesthood–and how your support helped make that happen.
The Roman liturgy has now entered into the “green” time after Pentecost, and we along with it turn our focus to the flourishing and advancement of Holy Mother Church.
So join us on the patronal feast of the great Apostles Ss. Peter and Paul for a celebration of the continued growth of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter and the new priests who will be taking up their work at various apostolates across North America.
Tu es sacerdos in aeternum, secundum ordinem Melchisedech.
