Ordination at the Toronto Oratory

As already alluded yesterday, the Toronto Oratory celebrated St. Philip's Day in a particularly special way, namely the ordination of Br. Michael Eades to the priesthood.

The Mass was celebrated by Archbishop Thomas Collins, the ordinary of the Archdiocese of Toronto.

Readers will no doubt find it of interest that the Mass was celebrated by the Archbishop ad orientem.

Congratulations to the Fr. Eades, and to the Toronto Oratory for another priest in their midst.

Father Eades celebrated his first Mass yesterday, May 27, 2009 at 11:30 AM in the same church. It was a Low Mass in the usus antiquior.

In addition, on Pentecost Sunday, Father Eades will be celebrant at the Toronto Oratory's church of St. Vincent de Paul at 9:30am, where he will celebrate the Solemn Mass of Pentecost, also in accordance with the liturgical books of the usus antiquior.

Those in the Toronto region, I would encourage you to go out to this solemn Mass and give your support and congratulations to Fr. Eades.

The NLM will bring you photo and possibly some video coverage of this Mass.
