Holy Orders

Ordinations have a profound significance for Catholics. The people of St. John Cantius Church have the joy of rejoicing with the members of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, especially on the occasions of priestly ordinations.

The parishioners of St. John Cantius Church rejoice with the members of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius who are led to the altar for the Sacred Rites of Ordination. Our parishioners know that the priest is not ordained for his family or friends alone. No! The priest “taken from among men, is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins” (Heb. 5,1). The honor bestowed upon the priest is honor bestowed upon the whole Catholic people out of whose midst he is taken.
