Candidacy Mass 2017

On Thursday, November 16, 2017, five seminarians – Matthew Joseph DeFusco and Matthew Thomas Himes from the Archdiocese of Baltimore; Magnus Tochi Iwuji and Daniel Ryan Molochko of the Diocese of Richmond; and Joseph Stephen Illes of the Diocese of Metuchen were admitted into Candidacy by the Most Reverend Adam J. Parker, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.  Candidacy is a liturgical rite of admission requested by a seminarian of his own Ordinary, which formally acknowledges and enrolls him as a candidate for Sacred Orders.   Congratulations!
