Ten Men Will be Ordained to the Priesthood

Mass will be at 10 a.m. ET Saturday, June 18

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Ten men will be ordained to the priesthood by Cardinal Wilton Gregory on Saturday, June 18, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. The Ordination Class includes natives of Poland, Italy and Spain as well as men who were raised in Southern Maryland, Baltimore and the D.C. suburbs.

As they have throughout June, parishes around the Archdiocese will continue holding Eucharistic Holy Hours to pray for the future priests and for vocations overall. One such Holy Hour will be held at the Basilica at 6 p.m. ET on June 17, the evening before the Ordination takes place there.

The Ordination Mass will be recorded and posted later that day on the Archdiocesan YouTube page.
