Priest Novena 2019

On May 18, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati will celebrate the historic ordination of nine men to the priesthood! Deacons Alex Biryomumeisho, Mark Bredestege, Zachary Cecil, Christian Cone-Lombarte, Ambrose Dobrozsi, Andrew Hess, Elias Mwesigye, Jeffrey Stegbauer, and Jedidiah Tritle have spent many years studying, discerning, and serving in preparation for this momentous day where they receive the Sacrament of Holy Orders. This will be the largest ordination class in more than 40 years!

We know that it is your prayers for the vocations of future priests that have strengthened them throughout their years of formation. We ask that you intensify your prayers and join us in a novena for these men as they near ordination day.

Videos will become available to be viewed on their corresponding day of the Novena
