We were recently invited to the Rite of Institution of Lectors and Acolytes by some friends of ours at St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park, CA. The main celebrant of the Holy Mass (in the Ordinary Form) was the Most Reverend Robert F. Vasa, D.D., Bishop of Santa Rosa. We join the family and friends of the instituted lectors and acolytes in congratulating them all, and we ask our readers to keep them in your prayers as they continue their vocation discernment process. Below are a few photos taken from this special event. More photos can be viewed at our smugmug gallery website.
