  • Diocese of New Ulm seminarian Samuel Wagner was ordained to the order of the Diaconate by Bishop John M. LaVoir on June 15 at St. Mary’s Church in Sleepy Eye.
     
    Bishop LeVoir laid his hands on Wagner’s head, an essential part of the ordination ceremony. Used since the time of the Twelve Apostles, this gesture indicates the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on an individual.
     
    During the litany, the congregation begs the saints in heaven to pray for Wagner as he prepares to be ordained.
