Seminarian takes vows associated with the diaconal ordination

On Saturday, the 18th of May, the Seminary community started the day with a pilgrimage to the Ta’ Pinu Sanctuary.  On the way, the community recited the Rosary. H.L. Mgr Mario Grech celebrated Mass in the chapel of the sanctuary.  After the reading of the Gospel, seminarian Mario Mercieca, who hails from the Cathedral parish of the Assumption of Our Lady, made the vows of celibacy and faithfulness and the profession of faith prior to his ordination as deacon.  In his homily, Mgr Grech said that these vows are not just a rite to be taken lightly. These vows demand a commitment so that the diaconal life is led in the best way.
