Dear attendees and friends of the Eucharistic Convention
Bishop Denis Browne, Emeritus Bishop of Hamilton, will ordain Deacon Roger Gilbride, FSSP, to the priesthood and Mr Brendan Boyce, FSSP, to the diaconate on Saturday, October 3 2020, with the Mass starting at 10.30am.
Some may remember American singer Annie Karto encouraging our local “Young and Prolife Group” to get up on the stage with her to share some of their music with the audience. Roger Gilbride was part of that group so he has a tangible connection with our Eucharistic Convention. See the video below of the groups performance that year, Roger is the tallest of the group. What a blessing for this young man to have gone on to be ordained into the Catholic priesthood. We congratulate you Roger and please be assured of our prayers to support your incredible life choice.
Roger sent an open invitation to anyone wanting to attend his ordination. With COVID 19 restrictions in place numbers will be restricted to 100 so a large attendance will not be possible. I know Roger will appreciate your prayers so please remember him in a special way on Saturday.
