Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Congratulations, Peter!

March 31st, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

Diocese of Rochester seminarian, Peter VanLieshout, has been officially installed as a Lector in the Latin rite of the Roman Catholic Church. Congratulations Peter! Mr. VanLieshout is currently finishing up his first year as a seminarian at the North American College in Rome.

The steps toward the priesthood are:
lector -> acolyte -> ordination to the deaconate -> ordination to the priesthood

Please keep Peter in your prayers.

The Diocese of Rochester currently has six seminarians: Peter VanLieshout, Greg Rupik, Peter Mottola, David Tedesche, Michael Costik, and Matt Jones. We also have five discerners at Beckett Hall. Soon these men will learn whether they will proceed to seminary or not. Please, pray for all of our seminarians and discerners. We need priests, and we need good ones!

    I've mentioned before that I met Peter at a Theology on Tap session. I could not have been more impressed. He will be more than a good priest – he'll be a great one. You can get a feel for his passion by reading his blog.

    I have met Peter on a couple of occasions. He is not only an outstanding man, he is a man of great faith. I know that many are excited for a time when he becomes Father VanLieshout. I know in particular those of us in the Latin Mass community are, as he is the successor to Fr. B.
