Love Jesus and his gospel

On Saturday, 26 April 2014, two members the Congregation of Holy Cross were ordained to the priesthood at Notre Dame, Indiana, USA: the Shipmate whom we know as Hart, and his fellow seminarian Patrick. A team of Mystery Worshippers was on hand to memorialise the occasion for posterity. Share with Hart and Patrick the joy of the moment as seen from the Ship's unique vantage point – the back row of pews, naturally!

Drawn in the Spirit's tether

And previously, on Saturday, 7 September 2013, Hart and Patrick took their final vows in the Order of Holy Cross and were ordained to the diaconate. Once again, our Mystery Worshippers were there!
