How does a priest learn how to say Mass, how to welcome someone into the Church through Baptism, and how to properly preside at a funeral?
In preparation to become priests, seminarians are formed in human, pastoral, spiritual, and intellectual dimensions. But there is also a practical element, where every action he takes is prayerfully rehearsed and repeated, so that he can confidently preside at Mass and share the Sacraments with you.
Keep these future priests in your prayers, especially our Ordination Class of 2019, as they begin their service as priests in the next few weeks! https://usml.edu/priest-2019/
Thanks to Deacon Carlos Orozco (Archdiocese of Seattle), Deacon Rob Mulderink (Diocese of Grand Rapids), Deacon Josh Link (Archdiocese of Dubuque), Deacon Jesus Haros (Diocese of Tucson) and our Director of Liturgy, Father Brad Zamora, for sharing about their experience.
