Congratulations Chris!

Christopher Ziegler is a parishioner of Our Lady of Good Counsel

Congratulations and God’s blessings upon the four seminarians from the Diocese — William Clingerman, Timothy Graham, James Sicilia and Christopher Ziegler — who participated in the Rite of Candidacy during the 5 p.m. Vigil Mass celebrated by Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., Dec. 15, 2018 in St. James Church, Pennington. The Rite marks a milestone for the men as they were welcomed by the Bishop into their next step of seminary formation.

The Mass during Advent has become an annual tradition in which Bishop O’Connell brings together all the seminarians of the Diocese during their break from seminary studies. After the Mass, the Bishop hosted a Christmas dinner which gives the seminarians an opportunity to share fellowship and interact.
