On Wednesday, April 10, 2013, the community of Mount Angel Seminary celebrated its annual Ministries Mass, and Bishop George Thomas of the Diocese of Helena installed sixteen theologians as lectors and twenty-one theologians as acolytes.

The seminary community gathered in the Abbey Church to celebrate the Ministries Mass.

Each of the new lectors, including Gonzalo Siller, approached Bishop Thomas.  He was assisted by Br. John Paul Le and Fr. Liem Nguyen. 

After the new lectors, the new acolytes, including Br. Peter Mary Vecellio, OCD, approached Bishop Thomas.
