2012 Ordinations at Florence, Italy

Update [7/31/12]: More photos of the ordination can be viewed here, as well as an excellent video

This week at the beautiful church of Sts. Michael and Gaetano in Florence, Italy, five seminarians from the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest were ordained to the priesthood by Raymond Cardinal Burke. There were also five others who were ordained deacons, and another ten were ordained subdeacons. 

Abbe Francis Altiere (leftmost), Abbe Andrew Todd (third from left), and Abbe Joel Estrada (rightmost) were seminarians who had served at the Institute apostolate of St. Margaret Mary's in Oakland, CA. Let us remember the newly ordained priests, deacons, and subdeacons in our prayers!

  1. Is that Bishop Sample standing behind the newly ordained priests?
