Rev. Mr. Adam D.P. Booth, C.S.C., and Rev. Mr. Patrick E. Reidy, C.S.C., will be ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, April 26, 2014, at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the Campus of the University of Notre Dame.

Rev. Thomas J. O’Hara, C.S.C., provincial superior of the United States Province of Priests and Brothers, will present the two deacons for Ordination during the 2 p.m. Mass. The Most Rev. Kevin C. Rhoades, bishop of the Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese, will confer the Sacrament of Holy Orders.

On Sept. 7, 2013, Deacons Booth and Reidy professed perpetual vows of poverty, chastity and obedience and committed themselves to the common life and apostolic work of the Congregation of Holy Cross.

Looking ahead to their Ordination Fr. O’Hara commented: “Holy Cross rejoices with Adam and Pat as they begin their priestly ministries with zeal. We know that Adam and Pat, true to the Holy Cross charism, will be a blessing to God’s people by making Him known, loved and served throughout the world as educators in the faith.”
