Blessing cup

June 3, 2011

On June 2, Daniel Cardinal DiNardo blessed the chalices of the four seminarians who will be ordained the newest priests of the Archdiocese this weekend. During the ritual, Cardinal DiNardo urged the young candidates to see the Eucharist as the source of their priestly service and to be humble leaders of the people of the Archdiocese. 

Below, Deacons Phong Nguyen, Eurel Manzano, Jude Ezuma and Victor Perez recite the "Our Father" during the blessing service at the downtown Chancery. All four will be ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, June 4 at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, 1111 St. Joseph Parkway at 10 a.m.
