On the feast of St. Charles Borromeo Nov. 4, the seminary in Wynnewood marked the solemn occasion with a
Mass celebrated by Archbishop Charles Chaput in St. Martin Chapel. He also led the rite of admission to candidacy for ordination to holy orders — namely, ordination as transitional deacons and eventually as priests.
The seven seminarian candidates for the Philadelphia Archdiocese were Anthony J. Albanese, Phong T. Le, Shane M. Flanagan, Ricardo A. Martinez, Randall J. Kraft, John C. Okpara and Trung Q. Pham. Also in Pennsylvania, for the Diocese of Allentown were Alexander T. Brown and Miguel Ramirez Montano; and for the Harrisburg Diocese, Derick M. DeCamp and Kevin M. Key. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
