Father Larry Barile Ordained to the Priesthood

A celebration of the ordination to the priesthood of Reverend Lawrence Barile for service as a priest in the Diocese of Norwich took place on December 8, 2021.

The Ritual Mass for the Conferral of Holy Orders took place at the Cathedral of St. Patrick in Norwich, with the Most Reverend Michael R. Cote, D.D., Bishop of Norwich, as the ordaining celebrant.

A gathering of invited congregants, fellow diocesan priests, and deacons were at the cathedral to witness the ordination. The Mass also was live-streamed.

The Rite of Ordination began with the Presentation of the Elect by Reverend Jonathan Ficara, the vocations director for the diocese.

Father Ficara proclaimed that the elect was found worthy of priesthood.

“Relying on the help of the Lord God and our Savior Jesus Christ, we choose Lawrence John Barile, our brother, for the Order of the Priesthood,” Bishop Cote said.

All present stood and applauded to show their consent.

As the litany of supplication was chanted, the elect prostrated himself before the altar as all present, through the intercession of the saints, asked for God’s grace to be upon the new priest.

Bishop Cote then laid his hands upon the head of the elect. It was through this laying on of hands that the sacrament of Holy Orders was conferred. This was followed by the recitation of the prayer of ordination.

Father Barile then was vested in the stole and chasuble by the Reverend Raymond D. Introvigne, Director of Spiritual Renewal Services.

Father Barile imparted his blessing on Bishop Cote and extended his blessing to members of his family.

After the ordination, the new priest gave his blessing to the invited guests, who waited in a line inside the cathedral.
