Ordination

May 20, 2019
By Dcn Paul Wilkin SDS

I thank my God every time I remember you,… Phil 1:3  

 

With Praise and Thanksgiving to Almighty God
The Society of the Divine Savior joyfully announces and requests the honor of your presence for the Ordination of Paul Wilkin SDS to the Sacred Priesthood of Jesus Christ through the invocation of the Holy Spirit and imposition of hands by the Most Reverend Jeffrey Robert Haines Auxiliary Bishop of Milwaukee.

There will be four Salvatorians ordained on Sunday, June 23, 2019 at Noon.

————

It has been 6 years since I entered religious life with the U.S. Province of the Society of the Divine Savior (Salvatorians) here in Milwaukee, WI. With Candidature, Novitiate, First Profession / Temporary Profession, (Transitional) Diaconate Ordination behind me and one final semester remaining of Theological Studies at the Seminary, I will be Ordained to the Sacred Priesthood of Jesus Christ on Sunday, June 23rd, 2019.

Having spent the last year as a Deacon at St Margaret Mary’s Parish, a teaching parish under the guidance of Salvatorian Fr Patrick Nelson, the Salvatorians and the Auxiliary Bishop of Milwaukee have approved my Ordination to Priesthood. I will remain at St Margaret Mary’s Parish until I graduate with a Masters of Divinity in December 2019. After graduation my place of ministry has not yet been decided but it will be located somewhere within a Salvatorian US community prior to international ministry. The calling has so far directed me toward Vietnam the Philippines or Asia.  

If you can not make the Ordination but would like to watch it, the Salvatorians plan to broadcast it through Facebook Live. You will need to “Like” us on Facebook, Society the Divine Savior - The Salvatorians, then you will be notified of the live broadcast in Central Standard Time (CST). If your not on Facebook, then the video will be posted on YouTube, Salvatorians SDS-M, and some photos at the Salvatorian website soon after Ordination. However, send me an email and I will reply with a link to even more goodies.

Simple, Sincere Blessing.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.  Phil 4:23

——— Thank You! —————————————
I want to thank everyone for all your thoughts and prayers over the years. Without these I would not be on such a blessed journey toward priesthood. This blessed journey has included using the gifts God has graced me with so that I can serve others. I have also received many grace filled gifts back from those I serve whether in the U.S., Vietnam or the Philippines.

I also want to thank everyone who donated a little or a lot. Your sponsorship has made a difference in the ministries I have been involved with and continue to make a difference there today and even in the future. It amazes me how a donation is multiplied two, four, six fold or more in ministries abroad.
Phil 4:10-20.

Over the years you may have followed my ministries and journey to Priesthood through our Salvatorian website, Facebook OR my Photo Journals. I have included a link to my private webpage at our salvatorians.com website. Here you can follow what I am up to.
Below are other links to the Photo Journals so you can “see what I have been up to” in the past or to simply enjoy looking at the photos and comments over a cup of tea or coffee.  

Thank you always for your prayers and support.
I know the Lord has heard your prayers for I am continually blessed with many gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Dcn. Paul Wilkin SDS

The greatest among you will be your servant | Matthew 23:11

I joyfully invite you to my Final Vows with the Society of the Divine Savior on August 15th and to my Diaconate Ordination on August 18th, 2018 in Milwaukee, WI.

Virginus Osuagwu and I joined the Salvatorians at the same time, and now will profess and be ordained at the same time.

It has been 5 years since I entered religious life with the U.S. Province of the Society of the Divine Savior (Salvatorians) here in Milwaukee, WI.  Canidatture, Novitiate and three years of Temporary Professions are behind me. I continue Theological Studies at the Seminary.  I am now entering into my Final Profession of Vows with the Salvatorians on August 15th, 2018. 

Having made Deacon Promises earlier this year, I have been approved by the Salvatorians and the Auxiliary Bishop of Milwaukee to be ordained a Transitional Deacon on Saturday, August, 18th, 2018. Since your probably wondering, Ordination to the Sacred Order of Presbyters (Priesthood) usually follows in six months to a year. 

If you can not make it but would like to see the ceremonies, we plan to broadcast both through Facebook Live. You will need to “Like” us on Facebook, Society the Divine Savior - The Salvatorians, then you will be notified of the live broadcast in Central Standard Time (CST). If your not on Facebook, then there will be some photos on the Salvatorian website soon after.  You can also email me for a link to even more.
