Bishop of Allentown Alfred Schlert will administer the Sacrament of Holy Orders Saturday, June 2 while celebrating the Rite for Ordination to the Priesthood and configure Deacon John Hutta, II to the person of Christ. Deacon Hutta, 29, a parishioner of Sacred Heart, Palmerton and the son of John Hutta and Diane Hutta, will become a priest for the Diocese of Allentown at 10:30 a.m. during the solemn ceremony that is open to the public.
"Effective in action, gentle in ministry, constant in prayer – that’s the job description for the three of you for the rest of your lives,” said Bishop Schlert.
“We educate about who Jesus is and how he defines himself. He is the way, the truth and the light,” said Bishop Schlert, who was the principal celebrant for the Mass and presided at the special Marian devotion that paid tribute to the Blessed Mother as the “Queen of May.”
“Today is a day of accomplishment, but it is also a day of aspiration. It doesn’t end here. No one stops here today,” said Bishop Schlert while celebrating Baccalaureate Mass in the university’s Physical Education Center.
