Ten Seminarians Installed as Acolytes

November 14, 2022

The Acolyte Installation Mass took place on Sunday, November 13. Bishop Uglietto, of the Archdiocese of Boston, celebrated the Mass.

The ministry of acolyte is the final ministry before seminarians are ordained to the diaconate. In the rite of institution, the bishop hands those to be instituted a patent with bread and says, “Take this vessel with bread for the celebration of the Eucharist. Make your life worthy of your service at the table of the Lord and of his Church.”
