On the Solemnity of St. Joseph ~ Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary, at Paróquia São Pedro e São Paulo Paraíba do Sul-RJ (St. Peter and St. Paul Parish, in the city of Paraíba do Sul-RJ), the friars of our Custódia Provincial Imaculada Conceição do Brasil (Province Custody of the Immaculate Conception, in Brazil) gathered to celebrate the Ordenação Diaconal (Diaconal Ordination) of Frei Jesus Rodrigues do Amaral, OFM Conv., at the hands of Dom Gregório Paixão, OSB, bispo da Diocese de Petrópolis (Bishop of Petrópolis), in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
He is pictured above at right, with Frei Ricardo Elvis Arruda Bezerra, OFM Conv. (photo cred), with whom he professed the Solemn Vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience, on August 2, 2021.
