On Saturday, July 8th, nine new priests offered their First Masses in various locations at the Seminary, and they were overflowing with the visiting faithful.
A First Mass is typically preceded by the chanting of the "Veni Creator Spiritus" and is followed by the "Magnificat." The newly ordained priest customarily administers holy communion to his parents first.
All those who attended the First Masses on July 8th were able to benefit from a plenary indulgence under the normal conditions.
O Lord, grant us priests.
O Lord, grant us holy priests.
O Lord, grant us many holy priests.
O Lord, grant us many holy religious vocations.
O Lord, grant us many holy Catholic families.
V. St. Pius X,
R. Pray for us.
