Ordination of Deacons (st. Josemaría Parish, Rome, March 7, 2015)
On March 7, Bishop Echevarría conferred ordination as deacons on three associate faithful of the Prelature: Sidnei Fresneda Herrera, from Brazil, and Juan José Muñoz García and Rubén Mestre Andrés from Spain. The ceremony took place in the parish of St. Josemaría, in Rome’s Ardentine district.
“By your diaconal ordination, you become co-workers of the bishop and priests in the liturgical service. Not only because you can administer Holy Communion to your brothers and sisters, but because it is your responsibility to put special care and affection into everything referring to divine worship. Yes, Jesus Christ awaits you! Treat him with great refinement,” the Prelate reminded the ordinands.
