Two new priests will be ordained for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia this Saturday, May 20, and everyone in the archdiocese is invited to attend.
Archbishop Charles Chaput will celebrate Mass and preside at the ordination rite for Rev. Mr. Matthew Brody and Brian Connolly – read about their life’s story in our Profile section – beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday in the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul.
The cathedral is located at 18th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia.
Ordinations are archdiocesan celebrations, and all the faithful are encouraged to participate and add their prayers of thanksgiving to God for this year’s new priests.
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.
