FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 27, 2013
Largest Ordination Class for the Diocese of Brooklyn Since 2007
Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio will ordain eight men to the priesthood for the Diocese of Brooklyn at a Mass at St. James Cathedral Basilica, 250 Cathedral Place, Downtown Brooklyn, on Saturday June 29th at 11 a.m.
Three of the men hail from Haiti, two have Korean origins, one an African-American, one an Italian- American and one a Filipino-American. They are Dwayne Davis, Raymond Flores, Stephen Giulietti, Paul Young Kim, Jun Hee Lee, Michel Pierre Louis, Killick Pierrilus and Lucon Riguad.
“The Ordination of priests has been one of the great joys of my Episcopal ministry and I have had the privilege of Ordaining 45 men to the priesthood, including our eight newly Ordained, since I came to the Diocese in 2003,” said Bishop DiMarzio. “Their language abilities certainly cover the needs of our multi-ethnic Diocese, and I admire each of these young men. Despite the many distractions of the world, they have given up everything to come and follow Christ.”
The Ordination Mass can be watched on NET TV on Cablevision Ch. 30 and TimeWarner Ch. 97, and will be live-streamed at www.netny.net.
