St. Jude's Church near Philadelphia, PA joyfully celebrated the recent priestly ordination of one of its parishioners, Fr. Augustine, a Benedictine at Our Lady Of Guadalupe Monastery in Silver City, New Mexico.
Father celebrated a Solemn First Mass for his home parish on Sunday, June 26. Below are some photos from that Mass.
O God, our heavenly Father, who lovest mankind, and art most merciful and compassionate, have mercy upon thy servants for whom I humbly pray thee, and commend to thy gracious care and protection. Be thou, O God, their guide and guardian in all their endeavors, lead them in the path of thy truth, and draw them nearer to thee, that they may lead a godly and righteous life in thy love and fear; doing thy will in all things. Give them grace that they may be temperate, industrious, dilligent, devout and charitable. Defend them against the assaults of the enemy, and grant them wisdom and strength to resist all temptation and corruption of this life; and direct them in the way of salvation, through the merits of thy Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ, and the intercessions of his Holy Mother and thy blessed Saints. Amen.
Let us pray for Fr. Augustine.
