We are proud to announce that 3 new deacons will be ordained for the SSPX here in the United States on November 28 at St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary.

This sacrament of major holy orders will be given by Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais at the Winona seminary to the 3 subdeacons recently ordained at the new Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Phoenix, Arizona on September 14th:

  • Rev. Mr. Francis Palmquist
  • Rev. Mr. Paul Franks
  • Rev. Mr. Brandon Haenny

Please pray for the continued sanctification and perseverance of these diaconate ordinands, and for their faithful service to Holy Mother Church!
