Deo gratias--This morning in Bavaria, Archbishop Guido Pozzo, Secretary to the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, ordained five new priests for the FSSP. One of the five--Fr James Mawdsley--will be sent to St Mary's, Warrington. (Click here for a schedule of his first Masses.)
Several of the faithful from St Mary's Shrine and the rector, Fr de Malleray, FSSP, were present at the ordination, as also were clergy from the Archdiocese of Liverpool.
