Photopost: FSSP Diaconal and Priestly Ordinations

On June 1st, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter held priestly and diaconal ordinations in Lincoln, Nebraska, at the Cathedral of the Risen Christ.

The Celebrant was His Excellency Most Rev. Andrew Cozzens, auxiliary bishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota. Five men were ordained to the sacred priesthood: Reverends Daniel Alloy, Eric Krager, Joseph Loftus, David McWhirter, and Javier Ruiz Velasco Aguilar. Additionally, six men were ordained to the diaconate: Deacons John Audino, Joseph Dalimata, James Eichman, Nicholas Eichman, Joel Pinto Rodriguez, and Thu Truong. Although existing restrictions this year meant that only limited numbers were able to attend, the ceremony was streamed live to the entire world via

Special thanks to Charles Barbeau for providing the photographs.
