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.

For those who cannot attend the Mass, it will be streamed live at www.archphila.org and broadcast via Facebook Live at www.facebook.com/ArchbishopChaput.
