MANCHESTER – The Most Rev. Peter A. Libasci, Bishop of Manchester, ordained Rev. Ryan Amazeen and Rev. Joshua Livingston to the priesthood at Saint Joseph Cathedral in Manchester on June 6.
“It brings me great joy to know that, even in these difficult times, men continue to hear and answer the call to the priesthood in our diocese,” Libasci said. “I am grateful to those who have fostered the vocations of Fr.
