The diverse people of the Diocese of Brooklyn are receiving new ministers for their spiritual needs. Of the ten men who will be ordained priests, seven were born outside of the United States. Currents Correspondent Katie Breidenbach completes the “Called to Serve” series by introducing the last two candidates to the priesthood. Deacon Uririoghene “Melchizedek” Okrokoto is from Nigeria, while Deacon Lukasz Kubiak comes from Poland. Both believe God is calling them to minister in the Diocese of Immigrants.

The ten candidates will be ordained on Saturday, June 4th, at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph in Brooklyn. Watch the ceremony live on NET-TV starting at 11am.
