NOTRE DAME, Ind.—Three Deacons of the Congregation of Holy Cross, United States Province of Priests and Brothers, will be ordained to the priesthood 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 6, at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of the University of Notre Dame.

Provincial Superior, the Rev. Thomas J. O’Hara, C.S.C., will present the Rev. Mr. Brian C. Ching, C.S.C., the Rev. Mr. Mark F. DeMott, C.S.C., and the Rev. Mr. Jarrod M. Waugh, C.S.C., for ordination. The Most Rev. Daniel R. Jenky, C.S.C., Bishop of Peoria, Ill., will confer the Sacrament of Holy Orders.

By professing perpetual vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, Deacons Ching, DeMott and Waugh have already committed themselves to the common life and the apostolic work of the Congregation. As Holy Cross priests, they will minister the sacraments of the Church, making God known, loved and served throughout the world.

"All of us in the Province are enormously proud of these three young Holy Cross men. Our prayers and support are with them as they prepare for this most sacred day,” said Fr. O’Hara. “Each will be a blessing to God's people whom they will serve as priests of the Congregation of Holy Cross." Read the full press release here
