Off to the ordination

I'm heading down soon to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception for the Episcopal Ordination Mass of Augustine DiNoia, OP, who will become titular archbishop of Oregon City and Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments.

Fr. DiNoia had asked to be ordained a bishop in Washington so that his family could be there. And not just his family family, but his brothers and sisters in St. Dominic as well. They're saying there should be about one hundred Friars there, and I think they're hoping for another couple hundred Lay Dominicans. I'm sure there will be plenty of apostolic Sisters, too. (The cloistered Nuns, though, never seem to make these things.)

Thomas Peters and Rocco Palmo will also be there, if you're looking for actual news on the event.
