Three New Candidates for the Priesthood

On Sunday 15th February, 2015, three seminarians will ask the Church to accept them officially as candidates for their Ordination to the Diaconate and the Presbiterate during a concelebrated Mass presided over by Bishop Charles J. Scicluna at the Parish Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Gżira, at 6:00pm.

The three seminarians, who are in their fifth year of formation at the Archbishop’s Seminary, are Sinclair Bugeja from the Parish of the Holy Family, Iklin, Ryan Lee Pace from the Parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Gżira, and Mark Spiteri from the Parish of Saint Philip of Agira, Ħaż-Żebbuġ.

These three seminarians will publicly manifest their will to offer themselves to the Church to serve in the ministerial priesthood. While accepting their offering with joy, the Bishop will call on the candidates to ensure that during the remaining years prior to their ordination, they will prepare themselves to worthily receive Holy Orders.

The Christian community is asked to pray for these new candidates for the priesthood.
