Congratulations to our previous Grand Knight John Butler on being ordained to the Priesthood

Our PGK John Butler was ordained to the Priesthood on Saturday, May 31st.


At the 8:00 minute mark is when we first catch sight of John Butler in the video.

At the 36:23 minute mark is the laying on of hands by Bishop O’Connell. John Butler is the first of the group to be ordained to receive the laying on of hands. (By this ritual the ordaining bishop and the other priests invoke the Holy Spirit to come down upon the one to be ordained, giving him a sacred character and setting him apart for the designated ministry. More facts may be found at FAQS- Priesthood, Ordination, Seminary)

Fr. John Butler celebrated Mass at St. Paul’s the weekend of June 7th.
