Sixteen Jesuit priests to be ordained in the U.S.

First ordinations into Society of Jesus since election of Jesuit Pope
The National Jesuit News released an article on the upcoming ordination of 16 Jesuit priests barely three months after the election of the first Jesuit Pope in history. The new priests will be ordained this month in the United States. Although they all hail from the U.S., each has served and studied in several countries around the world.

Three months after the historic election of the first Jesuit Pope, the Society of Jesus, the largest order of priests and brothers in the Catholic Church, is ordaining 16 new Jesuit priests this month in the United States.

Ordination ceremonies are being held at Fordham University in the Bronx, N.Y.; Holy Name of Jesus Church in New Orleans; Church of the Blessed Sacrament in Los Angeles; and Madonna della Strada Chapel at Loyola University Chicago.
