St Francis' Church, Melbourne, 25 November 2017

The Ordination of Benjamin Ho, SSS was celebrated at St Francis' Church, Melbourne on Saturday 25 November 2017.

His ordination to the priesthood was conferred by the Most Reverend Terence R Curtin, DD, Auxiliary Bishop of Melbourne, in the presence of a church full of confreres, family, friends and associates.

Members of the St Francis' Choir and the St Francis' Youth Choir, in combination with brass, timpani and organ provided a festive and joyous atmosphere to this important occasion.

Added cause for rejoicing was that Fr Ben's ordination is the first in the Australian Province for nearly 20 years, the last being in August 1998.

Fr Ben's first Eucharist was celebrated on Sunday 26 November 2017 where he was proudly assisted by Fr Graeme Duro SSS, Director of Formation.
