Archbishop Henry J. Mansell will ordain seven men to the Holy Priesthood on May 12, at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph in Hartford at 11 a.m. The ordinands are: Henry Alexander Avendaño Varon, Didier Juliàn Cardona Marín, Jorge Eliecer Castro Morales, Mathieu Isaac, Robert Nelson Landback, Timothy Edward Ryan, Nicola Nghĩa Hũu Trân.
In their spiritual journey toward receiving Ordination to the Priesthood, these men have completed Bachelor of Arts degrees in philosophy and four years of studies in Theology, and for the past several months have been training with priests at different parishes, and learning how to provide pastoral care.
During the ordination, Mansell will make public the parishes where the new priests will begin their priestly ministry.
“We praise God for the talents, experience, and commitment of these seven men. They bring great hope and encouragement to our archdiocese. We assure them of our support and prayers as they serve our communities,” said Mansell.
The public is encouraged to attend the Mass of Ordination.
