  • Institution of Reader | 3/15/2015

    On Sunday, March 15, 2015 Most Rev. John R. Manz will preside at the Rite of Institution into the Ministry of Reader at the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception, University of Saint Mary of the Lake.  Six first year candidates will take part in the liturgy and become instituted Readers.

    At the institution, Bishop Manz will charge the men to be faithful in handing on the Word of God so that it may grow strong in the hearts of His people. Additionally, being an instituted Reader means “taking on a special office within the Christian community.” Besides proclaiming the word in the liturgical assembly, an instituted Reader is responsible for:

    - instructing children and adults in the faith;
    - preparing them to receive the sacraments worthily;
    - bringing the message of salvation to those who have not yet received it.

    This is an awesome responsibility as well as part of the continuing discernment process as each candidate moves forward on his journey in formation and listens to God’s plan for him in future ministry.

  • Rite of Candidacy | 10/12/2014

    On Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 1:30pm Auxiliary Bishop John R. Manz of the Archdiocese of Chicago will call nine men to the Rite of Admission to Candidacy for Holy Orders (Order of Deacon) at the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception, University of St. Mary of the Lake.  These nine men will be formally enrolled as deacon candidates for the Institute for Diaconal Studies.

    Candidacy is the first official recognition by the Church of the positive signs of his vocation to the diaconate, which must be confirmed in the next three years of formation—a period that includes academic courses, spiritual formation and direction, pastoral ministry experiences, human/personal development, field education, internships, and much more.

    To get to this point in his formation, the men have journeyed through a one-year period of discernment called the Aspirancy Path that included prayer and spiritual formation sessions, an intensive and comprehensive course on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, days of reflection on the deacon’s share in the bishop’s ministries, field ministry experiences in ministering to a culturally diverse Church, a field education experience in Service to Charity, monthly spiritual direction, and a retreat during which he prayed and reflected, with his family, over his possible call to the ordained ministry of deacon.
