It’s a liturgy that most Catholics never get to experience: the ordination of a bishop. The faithful of Hamilton, Ontario, however, will have this privilege on Tuesday, May 7 – as will viewers on S+L television and online. That day, Fr. Daniel Miehm will be ordained as Auxiliary Bishop for the Diocese of Hamilton.
The liturgy will be live streamed here at 2:00 pm. S+L will televise the mass at 8:00 pm, repeating at 12:00 midnight and the following day at 1:00 pm (all times Eastern).
Bishop-elect Miehm, 52, was born in Kitchener, Ontario. In 1989, he was ordained to the priesthood in Hamilton’s Cathedral of Christ the King – the very same church where he will be made a bishop. Since then, he has served in parishes in Stoney Creek, Hamilton, Ancaster and Milton. His appointment as bishop was announced on February 20, just eight days before Pope Benedict’s resignation took effect.
The principal consecrator and homilist will be the bishop of Hamilton, Most Rev. Douglas Crosby, OMI.
