Three Mexican brothers ordained in historic ceremony

.- Three Mexican brothers, Alberto, Jesus and Andres Garcia Gutierrez, were ordained to the priesthood by the Archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez, in an historic celebration for their archdiocese.

The ordination, which took place at the Cathedral of Guadalajara on Sunday, August 17, was an unprecedented event in the Archdiocese of Guadalajara.  “According to historical records, there is no record to date of three priests who are brothers being ordained on the same date,” officials said.

Alberto and Andres finished their formation with the Legionaries of Christ in Rome.  Alberto will be going to Brazil as missionary and Andres will be an associate pastor in Mexico.  Their brother Jesus, who also studied with the Legionaries, completed his formation at the Diocesan Seminary of Guadalajara, where he will have his first assignment as a priest.

The three brothers will concelebrate their first Mass at the Parish of St. Sophia in Tlaquepaque on Friday, August 22.
