Institution of Acolyte

This past Friday, March 28th, our Provincial conferred upon three of our brothers the ministry of acolyte. This means that Br. Justin, Br. Richard, and Br. Tuan have now been entrusted with the sacred duty of assisting the priest and deacon at the altar. They may also serve as extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion and expose the Blessed Sacrament for adoration by the faithful, when the ordinary minister--a priest or deacon--is unavailable.


Br. Tuan Ngo, of the Vicariate of St. Vincent Pham Hieu, receives the paten and chalice.



Congratulations to our brothers. Please pray that they may continue to grow in fervent devotion of the Eucharist as they move towards ordination to the priesthood.
