Diocese of Brooklyn’s Ordination Class Is Largest in Nation

June 20, 2014 – Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio will ordain thirteen men, the biggest class of new priests in the country, on June 28 at the newly renovated Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph.

“These thirteen men represent the great diversity of ethnicity, life experience, and socioeconomic background of the Church of Brooklyn and Queens,” Bishop DiMarzio said. “Yet, all share the one desire: to serve as a priest. I am privileged to ordain them as priests of Christ and welcome them to the Presbyterate of Brooklyn.”

The ordination mass will be held on Saturday, June 28, at 11AM and will be live-streamed on NET TV. For more information on the mass and the men being ordained, see the official press release.
