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.
