Ordination of 12 Catholic Priests in Washington DC

As many of you know, on Saturday May 27, the Archdiocese of Washington DC ordained 12 new priests. Two of these guys, Fr. Greg Shaffer and Fr. Larry Swink, served at St. Martin's.

It was an incredibly moving experience to witness this ceremony and attend their first Masses. For those that are interested, I have included this 12 minute video stream that highlights some of the moments of the Mass.


On a personal note, Fr. Larry and Fr. Greg have been huge influences in my life. Without Fr. Greg's witness talk at the very first Men of Emmaus meeting, I don't know that I would have come this far this fast in my personal conversion. More on this later...

Nicely documented Ty. I've never attended an ordination before, maybe at this Saturdays meeting you and the other men whom attended can talk more about the experience.
