The Profession and Oaths were made before Bishop Joash and witnessed by the faithful of each mission as the priests swore upon the sacred Scriptures. After the vows, the bishop blessed each priest with a prayer for perseverance and presented him with a pastoral stole, admitting them to the charge of parochial administrator, before witnessing their signatures to the Oaths upon the altar.
Bishop Joash will be incardinating more priests as Advent progresses and into the New Year, as the territory receives growing interest in the Old Roman apostolate.
