Priesthood Ordination and Diaconate Ordination
Sep 5, 2020, 10:00 AM – Sep 5, 2020, 10:00 AMThe combined Priesthood Ordination Rite and Diaconate Ordination Rite will be celebrated by Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger with eleven men being ordained to the Diaconate, eight men to the Permanent Diaconate and three men to the Transitional Diaconate. There will be one man ordained to the Priesthood on that day.
Taking into account the extension of the stay at home restrictions and the restrictions for large gatherings once we are able to return to some sense of normality to life, we have been in consultation with Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger he has determined that the dates for Diaconate Ordination which was scheduled for May 16, 2020 and Priesthood Ordination which was scheduled for June 20, 2020 would need to postponed until the late summer. The new combined ordination date for Priesthood Ordination and Diaconate Ordination will be Saturday, September 5, 2020, 10:00 a.m. at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Albany, New York. There will however have to be certain restrictions on the numbers of people who will be able to gather at the Cathedral due not only to space but also government guidelines.
