If you attend a the ordination of a priest, but you don’t actually know him or his family, are you crashing the party? Editor Matt Gambino and producer Gina Christian put the question to Father Dennis Gill, director of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office for Divine Worship and rector of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul. As Philadelphia prepares to welcome the ordination of six new priests at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 19 at the cathedral — and everyone is invited — Father Gill explains the profound relationship between Christ, his people, and his priests. Holiness in a common priesthood of all the baptized is a call shared by all of the faithful, one made possible through the person and work of Christ.
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.
