On June 30, 2018, the thirtieth anniversary of his episcopal consecration by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta conferred the Sacrament of Holy Orders on six deacons at the international Herz Jesu Seminary in Zaitzkofen (Germany).
The pontiff was assisted by Fr. Niklaus Pfluger, first General Assistant of the Society, and Fr. Stefan Frey, director of the seminary.
Many family and faithful came to be there with their prayers for the new priests who were ordained under a radiant sun.
