Father Seth Phipps Ordained in England

Fr. Seth Phipps

On Saturday, June 9th, 2018, the Rev. Mr. Seth Phipps was ordained to the holy priesthood by the Most Reverend Malcolm McMahon, Archbishop of Liverpool, at St. Mary’s Shrine, the FSSP’s apostolate in Warrington, England. The ordination was the 11th to take place for the North American District this year, Fr. Phipps’ classmates from Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary having been ordained two weeks prior in Omaha by the Most Reverend Alexander Sample, Archbishop of Portland. This is the second year that our Warrington apostolate has hosted ordinations: on June 17th, 2017, Archbishop McMahon ordained Fr. Alex Stewart and Fr. Krzysztof Sanetra at St. Mary’s. Fr. Phipps celebrated his first Mass the following day, Sunday, June 10th, 2018, at the same location.

You can view the full video and a photo gallery of the ordination and Pontifical Mass below. Please keep Fr. Phipps and the other new priests of the Fraternity in your prayers, as well as the five seminarians from our European seminary who will be ordained on the 23rd of this month.
