FSSP Ordination in Providence, Rhode Island, October 26

On Saturday, October 26th, the Rev. William Rock, a deacon of the FSSP, will be ordained to the Priesthood by His Excellency Athanasius Schneider, Auxiliary Bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan. The ordination will take place at 10:30 a.m. at St Mary’s Church, home of the Fraternity’s apostolate in Providence, Rhode Island, with first blessings and a reception to follow. The following day, which is the feast of Christ the King, Bishop Schneider will celebrate the 8 a.m. Low Mass, and Mr. Rock will celebrate the 10 a.m. High Mass, with first blessings afterwards. The beautiful and historic church of St Mary, located at 538 Broadway, became an FSSP apostolate last year, with Fr John Berg, the previous superior general, as its first pastor.

For more information, please see the parish website:, including information about a discounted rate at a nearby hotel for those attending the ordination. Those who plan to attend are requested to RSVP on the same webpage by October 14th, so that enough food can be prepared for the reception.
