Archbishop Vincent Nichols ordained eight new priests for the Diocese of Westminster on Saturday.

Archbishop Nichols ordained Oscar Ardila, Jeffrey Downie, Fortunato Pantisano, Martin Plunkett, Martin Tate, Mark Walker, Jeffrey Steel and Giles Pinnock to the priesthood during a Mass in Westminster Cathedral.

Seven of the new priests studied at the diocesan seminary Allen Hall and one at the Pontifical Beda College in Rome.

    Deo gratias!

  • Irenaeus of New York

    And there was much rejoicing!

    Iam pleased with the addition of the shepherds to the church.

    best wishes in your service at the vine yard of Christ.

    Thank you,

  • Athanasius

    Eight new novus ordo presbyters installed to promote the pseudo-Catholic religion of Vatican II and dispense its counterfeit sacraments.

    please stay in the stone age up in the mountains with the SSPX and the thin air where its difficult to think because of the lack of oxygen. I wonder why we allow your sacrilegious posts. The Catholic church is the one true church of yahweh, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. It is the only church that can trace its lineage directly to St. Peters and St. Paul and that is very significant. No other church can claim that.

    Good to see more priests to take the weight from the aging and retiring priests. God Bless you all in your work.

    Wonderful to hear! We need more priests. And holy priests. faithful to the pope and the Magisterium.
    We need to pray for priests, that they defend the Family, marriage between one man and one woman. That they never cease talking about the importance of traditional Family values in a world which is becoming increasingly hostile to marriage and Family.
    We should pray that Archbishop Nichols will be a faithful servant to these new priests, in is guidance.

    He’s not with the SSPX. The SSPX does not talk like that.

  • ExAng

    Agreed; but Yahweh is much more the OT equivalent of Christ. Yahweh was the SON of El in ancient Hebrew religion; do not be misled by several centuries of understanding ancient Hebrew religion as being the same as the Rabbinic form starting to develop with the Pharisees and completed after the birth of the Church. For more read the works of Margaret Barker sometime president of the Society for OT Study.

    Do the SSPX think that V2 ordinations are mere presbyteral ‘installations’? Do they think that V2 sacraments are ‘counterfeit’? As you seem pretty clueless, let me give you a hint: answers to both begin with the letter N.

    If +Fellay got wind that any of his priests believed what Athanasius appears to, he’d fire them immediately (as he has done in the past). Logically, the SSPX should be heroes yours. They believe as you do. They believe that V2 was a true Ecumenical Council of the Church, that its ‘priests’ are true priests, and that its new ‘mess’ is a true Mass. Perhaps you owe them an apology.

    anyone know where your reply to aspiring gay capuchin about Yahweh and jewish tetragrammaton went? i’ve got a feeling that if anyone says anything remotely critical of jews, it’s get flagged and deleted. talk about ‘fear of the jews’! perhaps this paper is controlled by them – if so, bang goes this comment also!
