2017 Ordinations

During 2017, seminarians from Notre Dame Seminary will be ordained to the Order of Deacon and the Order of Presbyter. This post contains photos of diaconate and priestly ordinations which took place around the country and world in dioceses and archdioceses such as Baton Rouge, Jackson, Nashville, New Orleans, Tororo, and Tyler. Ordinations are sacramental ceremonies which enable NDS’s studious, prayerful men of God to minister in Christ’s name and that of the Church. The ceremony includes various rituals such as prostration, laying on of hands, anointing of hands, giving of the chalice/paten, receiving of the word of the Holy Gospel, and the sign of peace.
