Rite of Admission to Candidacy

This morning Mount Angel Seminary celebrated the Rite of Admission to Candidacy for seminarians who will be ordained as deacons and priests in the near future.  

Over two dozen bishops and vocation directors came to Mount Angel Abbey this week to take part in the Mass and to attend the Annual Episcopal Council Meeting.  Archbishop John G. Vlazny of the Archdiocese of Portland was the presider at the Mass.  Under the direction of Mrs. Myrna Keough, the seminary choir provided jubilant music for the liturgy.

The seminarians admitted into Candidacy are listed below, along with links to their (arch)dioceses.  Follow the links and learn more about the dioceses served by Mount Angel Seminary.

For our journalism students who are working on profiles, each of these men is a good story possibility.
