Eight men were welcomed into the priesthood by the Diocese of Brooklyn Saturday June 29th, 2013. The Mass was held at St. James Cathedral Basilica in Downtown Brooklyn, with Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio presiding over the ceremonies. The new members hail from countries around the world, including Haiti and the Koreas. Bishop DiMarzio said they have language abilities that cover the needs of a diocese that covers many ethnicities. This is the diocese’s largest ordination class since 2007.
We congratulate all new priests and welcome them to our diocese and Catholic family of Brooklyn.
