With Praise and Thanksgiving to Almighty God the Diocese of Palm Beach Joyfully Announces the Ordination to the Sacred Priesthood of Jesus Christ of
Rev. Mr. Jean Serge Dube, Jr. and Rev. Mr. Joshua Martin


O Jesus, our great High Priest, hear our humble prayers on behalf of your priests.

Give them a deep faith, a bright and firm hope, and a burning love which will ever increase in the course of their priestly lives.

In their loneliness, comfort them; in their sorrows, strengthen them; in their frustrations, point out to them that it is through suffering that the soul is purified. Show them that they are needed by the Church, they are needed by souls, they are needed for the work of redemption.

O loving Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Priests, take to your heart your sons who are close to you because of their priestly ordinations, and because of the power which they have received to carry on the work of Christ in a world which needs them so much. Be their comfort, be their joy, be their strength, and especially help them to live and to defend the ideals of consecrated celibacy.
