Silver Jubilee

His Excellency, the Most Rev. Kevin C. Rhoades, celebrates his 25th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood today. The former rector of Mount Saint Mary's Seminary, Emmitsburg, MD, is the ninth bishop of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

We are blessed to have our current bishop since he is completely orthodox (ran one of the best seminaries on the East Coast) and is a loyal son of the Church. Bishop Rhoades restored the Tabernacle in the Cathedral to the center of the sanctuary and he invited the Fraternity of Saint Peter to come and celebrate the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite on a weekly basis (formerly, only allowed once a month on a Saturday evening) in a gorgeous German church, one block from the Cathedral. Our number of seminarians have doubled since his appointment as our chief shepherd.
