Ordination and First Mass of Fr Jordan Hainsey

This past Saturday, Jordan Hainsey, a friend of NLM who has made many guest contributions over the last several years, was ordained to the priesthood at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption in Covington, Kentucky, by H.E. Bishop Roger Foys. The following day, Fr Jordan celebrated his first Mass in the cathedral, with Bishop Foys attending in choir from his cathedra. We are very happy to share these pictures of the two ceremonies, and to offer our congratulation to Fr Jordan, to his family and friends, and to the entire diocese of Covington. Ad multos annos!
At the Litany of the Saints.

First Mass
Fr Jordan presents his parents with the manuterge with which his hands were bound at the anointing  during his ordination, and a purple stole; given the current quarantine situation, the stole has not been used yet, but will be at the first opportunity. The manuterge is traditionally placed between the hands of a priest’s mother, and the stole between the hands of his father, when they die, to symbolize that they gave a priest to God.
