The most joyful moments in the life of a seminary are the ordinations of the seminarians.
Last Saturday, Leonardo Moreira and Kevin Pleitez, together with seven other men, were ordained deacons by Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley, OFM Cap, in the Cathedral of the Holy Cross.
Even though they will continue as full-time students for the remainder of the academic year, during this time they will also exercise the ministry of deacons: Kevin, at Immaculate Conception Parish, Revere and Leonardo at St. Mary of the Assumption, Lawrence.
Please keep them in your prayers that they grow in intimacy with the Lord during this time of grace as they prepare for ordination as priests!
