Christendom College in Front Royal, Va., is celebrating the ordination of alumnus Jerome Guld, who became the College’s 70th alumnus priest on May 31, according to the College’s website.
Guld was ordained in the Diocese of Trenton, and Christendom alumnus Noah Morey was recently ordained in the Diocese of Arlington, as was reported.
The College reports:
“Many of my friends at Christendom College, both men and women pursued vocations,” Guld says in an interview on the Diocese of Trenton’s website. “In recent years, I have sensed my vocation strongly in each Christian situation of my life.”
…“As a priest I will fulfill a great need of our time,” he says. “I will have the opportunity of responding to God's people every day, and of fulfilling Christ's command to build up the Church. I will be able to do all this most uniquely and directly through ministry of the Mass, the Word, and the Sacraments.”
…As of June 2, 2014, Christendom College’s holistic educational and spiritual formation has helped foster 149 religious vocations during its 37-year history: 70 priests, 49 sisters, 5 deacons, 3 brothers, and 22 men currently in seminary.
Christendom College is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
