Les trois nouveaux sous-diacres

March 16, 2024, Sitientes Saturday, is traditionally the day of ordination ceremonies at the St. Pius X Seminary in Écône.

Bishop de Galarreta then proceeded with the ordination of three seminarians to the subdiaconate, in the course of which they made the definitive commitment to chastity, symbolized by the “step” ceremony. At the call of the assistant priest, the seminarians take a step forward to demonstrate their definitive desire to remain in the service of Christ.
