Bishop Michael Bransfield (Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston) and seminarians receiving the ministry of reader or acolyte (above).​

Throughout the seminarian’s journey in formation, they advance to different levels within ministry, the culmination of which is the ordination to the priesthood.  Each spring, seminarians are installed in the ministries of reader and acolyte. This year, Theological College was blessed with the presence of Bishop Michael Bransfield of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston who conferred these ministries for our community.
