Comment Email Print
 On Friday, the Feast of the Sacred Heart, the following four men will be ordained priests for the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter by Darío Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos, the President of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei: Rev Jared McCambridge, FSSP, from Arlington Heights, Illinoisl Rev Dennis Gordon, FSSP, from Nogales, Arizona; Rev Justin Nolan, FSSP, from Guthrie, Oklahoma Rev Jonathan Romanoski, FSSP, from New Cumberland , Pennsylvania. To be televised live on EWTN at 11am (EST), the ordinations will take place at the Cathedral of the Risen Christ, in the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska. Established in 1988 by Pope John Paul II, the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter is a Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical Right. The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter strives to serve the Catholic Church by means of its own particular and specific role or objective, i.e. the sanctification of priests through the faithful celebration of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. Through the spiritual riches of the Church's ancient Roman liturgy, the priests of the Fraternity seek to sanctify those entrusted to their care. The Priestly Fraternity instructs and trains its priests to preserve, promote, and protect the Catholic Church's authentic liturgical and spiritual traditions. The Fraternity has nearly 200 priests and over 100 seminarians studying in its two international seminaries in Bavaria, Germany and Denton, Nebraska. Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary Located in rural Denton, Nebraska, is the English-speaking seminary for the Priestly Fraternity. Men come from all over the world to study for the priesthood in the seminary's seven year program. Some represented countries have included Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, French West Indies, New Zealand, Russia, Scotland, and Trinidad/Tobago. Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary has also become the center of the world's largest provider of training resources and materials for priests who wish to learn the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. Since June of 2007, priests from over 60 dioceses in the United States have been personally trained. The seminary building itself has a total of 100 seminary rooms and 13 priest suites. The final phase of construction began last Fall with the ground breaking ceremony for the seminary's jewel and crown, the chapel. Actual work, beginning with the excavation and footings, recently began in March of this year. Presently, the contractor is working on the footings and basement walls with the construction. God willing, the seminary's long awaited chapel will be completed in the Fall of 2009. Source: Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary
