Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminarians Receive Minor Orders and Subdiaconate

His Excellency Fabian Bruskewitz, Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Lincoln, made his return to Our Lady of Guadalupe on Saturday, November 17, 2012 in order to convey both Minor Orders and the Subdiaconate upon seminarians.

The Minor Order of Lector was administered upon 16 seminarians, the Minor Order of Exorcist and Acolyte on five seminarians, and two seminarians were raised to the Subdiaconate.

Of the twenty-three men who received orders, three are members of the Congregation of the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer, or Transalpine Redemptorists. When they are not studying at Our Lady of Guadalupe, they reside at Golgotha Monastery Island, Papa Stronsay, in the Orkney Islands of Scotland.

The Fraternity of Saint Peter again gives its most sincere thanks to Bishop Bruskewitz for his many years of support and guidance, his conferral of innumerable Orders upon the Fraternity members, and his kind and gracious support in establishing our seminary within the diocese of Lincoln.  In your kindness, please keep our ordinands and those of the Transalpine Redemptorists in your prayers, as they continue their journey towards the Priesthood of Our Lord.

More pictures and information of the ordinations can be found in the Fraternity Newsletter. Not a subscriber? Request your newsletter here.
