The Pontifical Ordination ceremonies will be celebrated by H.E. Bishop Bernard Fellay and will begin at 9:00 am.
Each year on this solemn occasion, the Church calls us to contemplate the extraordinary mystery of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Eternal Priesthood. By the bishop’s imposition of hands, the newly ordained priest becomes an alter Christus. He receives upon his soul that indelible Levitical character which introduces him forvever into the Order of Melchisedech. By this ineffable change, the soul of the priest becomes inseparably united to Christ, whose first act was that of a Priest: adoration.
