Deacon Christopher Hoffmann Ordination Weekend Events

Make plans to join us on Saturday, June 1st and Sunday, June 2nd for an exciting, rare, faith-filled and joyous occasion, the ordination of Deacon Christopher Hoffmann! The weekend will begin with the ordination ceremony on June 1 at 10 am in the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Jefferson City with a reception immediately following. Let’s pack the cathedral with St. Vincent de Paul faithful as we witness our very own Deacon Christopher Hoffmann’s ordination to the priesthood. If you plan to attend the ordination and reception at the Cathedral you MUST RSVP. There are several ways to RSVP: 1) click HERE to go to the diocesan website, 2) sign-up on the sign-up sheet in the vestibule at each chapel, or 3) call or come in to the rectory.

The weekend events will continue on June 2nd with two Masses of Thanksgiving the newly ordained Fr. Hoffmann will preside over both the 10am Mass and the 11:30am Mass to express his thanksgiving for the support of our parish in his formation and journey to the priesthood. Immediately following the 11:30am Mass, Fr. Hoffmann will lead the Corpus Christi Procession through downtown Sedalia from St. Patrick Chapel to Sacred Heart Chapel. Once the Blessed Sacrament has been reposed, everyone is invited to the Commons and McGremlin Gym at Sacred Heart School for a joint celebration reception/parish picnic. We are asking everyone to RSVP so enough meat and drinks can be ordered. RSVP on the sign-up sheet in the vestibule at each chapel, or call or come in to the rectory.
