Priestly Ordinations 2012: Bishop Bruskewitz Ordains Five

On Saturday, May 19, 2012, five deacons of the Fraternity of St. Peter were raised to the Sacred Priesthood of Christ by His Excellency, Bishop Fabian W. Bruskewitz, at the Cathedral of the Risen Christ in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Our gratitude and thanks to His Excellency for ordaining these men to the Holy Priesthood, our congratulations to our new priests and their families, and thanks to all our benefactors and friends who have supported these men and the seminary during the course of their studies with prayers and other assistance. As each new priest has asked, and we always recommend, continue to pray for our new priests, and all of the priests of the Fraternity.

The newly ordained priests of the Fraternity are:

  • Father Gregory Eichman
  • Father Kevin O’Neill
  • Father Brian McDonnell
  • Father Karl Marsolle
  • Father Kenneth Walker

Please look for an article and even more photographs of the ordinations in an upcoming edition of the monthly newsletter.

For those who were unable to view the Ordinations live on, you can view them on the Live Mass Channel of Father Fryar, FSSP, on Youtube.
