Before a Paulist seminarian becomes a priest, he first spends about nine months as a transitional deacon (who may baptize, preach homilies at Mass and preside at weddings).

This new video provides highlights from the Mass at which Paulist seminarian Evan Cummings was ordained a transitional deacon. Evan spent a year with us 2016-2017 during his pastoral year. He will be ordained at St. Paul the Apostle Church in New York City on Saturday, May 18th.
