June 2007 Issue


What Happens During an Ordination? 
Discover the meaning behind the signs, symbols and traditions that are part of an ordination ceremony for the priesthood and diaconate.

One Collar, Many Cultures 
Since its early beginnings, the Diocese of Saint Augustine has been richly blessed with priests willing to leave their homeland to serve the people of Florida. It began with the Spanish, French and Irish and today we have priests from countries as far away as Poland and India.
