Ordination to Priesthood
With praise and thanksgiving to God,
our Father, the Most Reverend
Robert C. Morlino, Bishop of Madison,
announces with joy the ordination
to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ
Eric G. Sternberg
Michael R. Radowicz
Friday, May 27, 2005
7:30 p.m. at St. Aloysius Church, Sauk City
St. Aloysius is wheelchair accessible. There will be assistive-listening devices for the hard-of-hearing and a sign-language interpreter for the deaf. Large-print leaflets will be available.
Ordination: "I Bring You News of Great Joy"
"Annuntio Vobis Gaudium Magnum" - "I Bring You News of Great Joy." These were the words recently proclaimed by the cardinal at the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome as he announced the election of Cardinal Josef Ratzinger as Pope Benedict XVI.
Likewise, I echo these words in proclaiming the ordination to the priesthood of Rev. Mr. Michael Radowicz and Rev. Mr. Eric Sternberg, our two fourth-year seminarians. It is a year of great joy for our Diocese of Madison.
Michael and Eric will be ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Robert Morlino at the 7:30 p.m. Ordination Mass at St. Aloysius Church in Sauk City, Wisconsin, on Friday, May 27th. It is particularly poignant that in this Year of the Eucharist we are able to celebrate the ordination of these two young men on the weekend of the Feast of Corpus Christi. The priesthood and the Eucharist are intimately linked, for there is no Eucharist without the priesthood. Full story ...
