Bishop Anthony Taylor confers acolyte institution on George Kuforiji.
Portland seminarian, George Kuforiji, received the institution of acolyte at Sacred Heart School of Theology in Wisconsin. The institution is a milestone on the path to priesthood.
Kuforiji is expected to graduate in May 2015, and be ordained and begin serving in parish ministry in the Archdiocese of Portland shortly thereafter. Sacred Heart, in suburban Milwaukee, is North America’s largest seminary specializing in the formation of men over 30, with about 30 U.S. and Canadian dioceses and religious orders using it for the formation of their future priests.
