With great joy we report the ordination of four new young priests which took place on December 7, 2019 in Campos. Dom Fernando Arêas Rifan conferred the priesthood on Arthur José Brulher Teles Aguiar, Fabrício Luís Meira da Silve, Jean Marco Silvério de Oliveira and Mateus Mariano Costa.
The ordination Mass in the main church was packed with family, friends, fellow seminarians and priests, parishioners and visitors, all of whom were eager to kiss the hands of the newly ordained (and get their picture taken with each one) at the end of the ceremony.
The new priests celebrated their first solemn Masses in different cities around the diocese in the following days.
Please keep Father Arthur, Father Fabrício, Father Jean and Father Mateus in your prayers!
