In a Mass Saturday, May 4 at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, 21 men received the ministry of acolyte by which they will distribute holy Communion in liturgies. The men included four seminarians in priestly formation for Philadelphia, seven seminarians for other dioceses, one for the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians) and nine in formation for the permanent diaconate. Allentown Bishop Alfred Schlert, himself a graduate of St. Charles, was the presiding bishop who conferred the ministry. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
