The SSPX's Holy Cross Seminary in Goulburn, Australia is joyfully announcing the ordination of 2 subdeacons to the diaconate which took place on December 18th. Or as Fr. Paul Robinson, seminary professor, e-mailed us: "Yesterday was the biggest day of the year for us here at Holy Cross... Deo gratias!"
The beautiful ceremony of the ordination of deacons took place during a Pontifical Solemn Mass celebrated in the seminary's chapel and attended by representatives of the ordinand's families as well as 22 priests, 19 sisters and many faithful. During the sermon, Bishop de Galarreta spoke about the triple service that a deacon must render: to the altar, to the manifestation of the Faith, and to the Mystical Body of Christ.
