Profession of Faith and Oath of Fidelity for Priesthood

Profession of Faith and Oath of Fidelity for Priesthood

On Monday evening, April 25th, seminarians and faculty gathered for solemn Evening Prayer. During this rite, members of the fourth theology class made their Profession of Faith and Oath of Fidelity in preparation for their ordinations to the priesthood.
