Congratulations to Jordan MacGabhann, a clerical student for the Diocese of Kilmore in St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth, upon whom the Ministry of Reader was conferred by the Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin, Most Reverend Denis Nulty, during a special Mass in St. Mary’s Oratory on Thursday 13 February last.

The Ministry of Reader marks the first significant stage in a student’s time in the Seminary. The Ministry of Reader (normally conferred during a student’s second year in the Discipleship Stage) appoints him to read the Word of God in the liturgical assembly. 

Jordan is photographed above (fourth from the left, back row).
