On November 23, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco ordained Christendom College alumni Zach Akers, ’05, and Daniel Heenan, ’05, to the diaconate in the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP). Also, alumni Bill Erwin, ’00, and John Killackey, ’11, recently received their clerical tonsure and incorporation into the FSSP on October 18.
Both Akers and Heenan will be ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, June 14, 2014 at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church in Leesburg, Va, by Bishop James Conley of Lincoln.
Christendom College has helped foster 148 religious vocations amongst its alumni ranks (68 priests, 50 sisters, 3 deacons, 2 brothers, and 27 men currently in seminary). Additionally, over the past 35 years, there have been 360 alumna-to-alumnus marriages.
Led by Christendom alumni, the Front Royal, Va., chapter of the Knights of Columbus is hosting a fundraiser at Christendom College for local vocations—including Akers and Heenan. Find out more here.
