Transitional Diaconate Ordination Schedule 2022

​Sixteen seminarians to complete next step on path to priesthood

by Editorial Team

Ordination to the diaconate is the last major step in a seminarian’s journey to the priesthood. This year, sixteen Sacred Heart seminarians will be ordained into the transitional diaconate across six dioceses and two religious communities: Companions of the Cross and the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity. The Sacred Heart Major Seminary community is grateful to the Holy Spirit for calling these men to serve the Church in Holy Orders. We praise God for our seminarians’ fidelity to grace in responding to God’s call for their life. Below you will find the schedule for ordinations, including livestream information. Join us in congratulating our seminarians and praying for their continued path to priesthood. Come, Holy Spirit!
