Watch: Upon the Eve of Ordination | Meet the Ordinandi

Of your charity, please pray for Deacon Riley O’Shea and Deacon Joshua Fons, pictured above, who are due to be ordained the sacred priesthood for the Diocese of Lansing by Bishop Earl Boyea at Saint Mary Cathedral in Lansing tomorrow, June 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ave Maria! Watch this short but fabulous film, below, as both men recount their path to the priesthood.

Following tomorrow’s ordination, the newly ordained Father Fons will become a Parochial Vicar at Saint Patrick in Brighton while the newly ordained Father O’Shea will become Parochial Vicar at Saint Thomas Aquinas Parish and Saint John Church and Student Center, East Lansing.

Our Lady, Queen of the Clergy, pray for them.
