One of the greatest joys for any diocese is the day a young man is ordained to the Sacred Order of the Holy Priesthood. Today, the Diocese of Santa Rosa receives that exact joy as two young men will give their lives completely to God in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, where by they will receive the precious, indelible mark upon their souls, making them priests of Jesus Christ forever.
Below is a beautiful prayer for priests which seeks the intercession of St. Joseph. We ask you to join us in praying these prayers for the newly ordained priests, that Our Lady, St. Joseph, and all the holy, priestly saints in Heaven may intercede before the celestial altar of God - that He may bless and protect their priesthood.
