FSSP Ordinations in Bavaria
There are other and better photos around of this but I might as well put up those I have. Archbishop Pozzo, Secretary of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, was the ordaining bishop. It took place in St Margaretas Church, Heimenkirch, not far from the FSSP Seminary at Wigratzbad.
The Church in England was well represented at the ordinations. Here Fr Bede Rowe lays his hands on James Mawdsley, just ordained. Archbishop Pozzo was assisted by two English priests of the Fraternity, Fr William Barker from Rome and Fr Ian Verrier from Reading - the latter is visible in the photo above, above Fr Bede.
Fr John Berg, the Superior General of the Fraternity, incenses the Archbishop.
Fr James Mawdsley FSSP between Fr Armand de Malleray FSSP and Mgr John Walsh from Liverpool Diocese.
Fr James gives a 'first blessing' to his twin brother, a Lt-Col, who attended in a splendid dress uniform.
Those ordained were: Simon Grauter (from Germany), James Mawdsley (from England and Australia), Gregor Pal (from Germany), Michael Parth (from Austria), and Jakub Zentner (from the Czeck Republic).
