Pope Francis to ordain 19 new priests at the Vatican

2015-04-25

Pope Francis will confer priestly ordination on to 19 deacons on Sunday morning at St. Peter's Basilica. They come from eight different countries and are all less than 40-years-old.

Ordination by Pope is a tradition started by Pope John Paul II in 1982. It now takes place every fourth Sunday of Easter, which is also the World Day of Prayer for Vocations.

The theme for this year, which is the 52nd World Day of Prayer for Vocations, is "Exodus, a fundamental experience of vocation.”

Nine of the 19 future priests are Italian. The other 10 are from Madagascar, India, Peru, Colombia, Chile, South Korea, and Croatia.

During the ceremony, the Pope will be joined by: Cardinal Agostino Vallini, Archbishop Filippo Iannone, the five auxiliary bishops of Rome, the new priests' seminary superiors and parish priests. 

A vigil will be held the night before, and the actual ceremony will take place at 9:30 a.m.
