See the images from the ceremonies hosted at the Zaitzkofen seminary in Germany!

Earlier this week we reported that 31 seminarians had taken the cassock at the SSPX's seminaries in Winona, Minnesota and Flavigny, France.

The news and images have just been made available from the German-speaking Sacred Heart Seminary located in the Bavarian town of Zaitzkofen, where on February 2nd, another 8 seminarians received the black clerical habit from Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta. This now elevates the number to 39 new seminarians of the SSPX in cassock! Also, another 4 seminarians were given the tonsure and thus officially became clerics of the Roman Catholic Church.

But even more joyful is the announcement that on the previous day, February 1st, Bishop de Galaretta ordained another 5 men to the minor holy orders (porter, lector, exorcist and acolyte); 2 Swiss, 1 German, 1 Pole and a Russian.

Again, please keep all of the SSPX's seminarians in your prayers!
