Novena for Men Chosen for the Priesthood

God our Father, You appointed Jesus Christ High Priest of the new and eternal covenant. By grace you allow men to share in this priesthood and in his saving work. We ask you to pour out your Holy Spirit on the men you have chosen for priesthood. May they preach the Gospel worthily and wisely, celebrate the sacraments faithfully and reverently, and pray without ceasing. May they be united more closely every day to Christ the High Priest, who offered himself for us to the Father as a pure sacrifice. Bless, sanctify, and consecrate men whom you have chosen and called to the sacred order of Priesthood. Through the Holy Spirit make their lives worthy of the mysteries they celebrate. We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Priest and Lord. Amen!

We look forward to welcoming Deacon Kenneth Kirkman and Deacon Peter Tassini to the priesthood on June 4 at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception!
