June 20 is ordination day for Deacons Lange and Rozier

The Northern Cross

Deacons Timothy Lange and Blake Rozier will be ordained to the priesthood on Friday, June 20, at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary, a year to the day after they were ordained transitional deacons. Mass begins at 4 p.m.

The two transitional deacons are also hosting a Holy Hour at the Cathe- dral the evening before in preparation for the ordination. Prayers will be led at the hour by Bishop Paul Sirba, beginning at 5:30 p.m. June 19.

Deacon Rozier, the son of Mark and Mary Rozier, comes from Holy Spirit Church in Virginia, and Dea- con Lange, the son of Greg and Mary Lange, is from St. Andrew’s in Brain- erd. Both studied at St. Paul Seminary in St. Paul.

Each newly ordained priest will hold a Mass of Thanksgiving the following day, June 21, at his home parish.

After his ordination, Father Lange’s Mass of Thanksgiving will be held at St. Andrew at 10:30 a.m. Father Rozier’s Mass of Thanksgiving will be held at Holy Spirit at noon.

There is no transitional deacon ordination this year.
