Ordinations at Ecône Seminary

Source: FSSPX News

The Saint Pius X international seminary has released important information concerning the date of ordinations.

The date of ordinations to the diaconate and to the priesthood, initially scheduled for June 29 as every year, is being postponed by two days.

Since health constraints in Switzerland will still be strict in June, but will ease considerably beginning July 1, allowing a very marked increase in the number of participants in open-air meetings.

This is why the ceremony will therefore take place on Thursday, July 1 at 9 a.m., on the feast of the Precious Blood of Our Lord.

The Pontifical Mass will be celebrated by Bishop Bernard Fellay on the meadow in front of the seminary as usual.

The clergy and the faithful are invited to come in large numbers to pray for the ordained young men, to receive the first blessings from the new priests and to attend the first Masses the next day.

It will be possible to eat on site - at low cost - after the ceremony.
