Fifteen seminarians of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, including three for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, were instituted into the ministry of lector April 25 at the seminary’s St. Martin’s Chapel in Wynnewood. Bishop Paul S. Loverde of the Diocese of Arlington was the main celebrant for the Mass.
The three Philadelphia seminarians receiving the ministry were First Theology students Kyle Adamczyk, Eric Banecker and Austin Chukinas. Through their ministry and as they continue formation at the seminary toward priestly ordination, the lectors are empowered to proclaim Scripture during Catholic liturgies. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
