On the 27th June, at the end of the year 2014-2015 which was notable for the installation of the Motherhouse and House of Formation of the Community of Saint Martin in Evron, Mgr Thierry Scherrer, the local bishop of Laval, ordained the four priests and five deacons that were presented to him for ordination by don Paul Préaux, the Moderator-General of the Community.

The following day, each new priest celebrated, with manifest emotion, a first mass with the seminary and his close relatives. They then began their journey of first masses in the various places that had marked their road to the priesthood. For a week each new priest takes the time to give thanks to God for his years of formation and to offer the his future sacerdotal ministry.

Let us give thanks to God for his gifts and continue to pray for vocations.
