On March 19, 2022, the Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the B.V.M., the Province of St. Bernardine and St. Angelo in Italy (Abruzzo-Molise) joyfully celebrated the priestly ordination of Friar Paride ADMIRATI.
The ordination took place in our Parish Church of Sant’Antonio di Padova in Pescara, Italy. The Minister Provincial Friar Mauro M. DE FILIPPIS DELFICO was present along with his Definitory and almost every member of the Jurisdiction, including the Procurator General, Friar Maurizio DI PAOLO and Friar Giulio CESAREO. Others attending included some friars from the Seraphicum College in Rome together with the Dean, Friar Raffaele DI MURO, several friars from the Rivotorto post-novitiate; and many priests, religious, friends and relatives.
Friar Paride was born in Pescara on April 10, 1989. He made his simple profession on August 26, 2017, in Assisi, and his solemn profession on September 26, 2020, in Pescara. Since September of 2020, he has been a member of the community at the Sant’Antonio di Padova Friary in Pescara, where, among his other duties, he serves as the Provincial Secretary.
The friars of the Province are very grateful to the Lord for having guided the current youngest member of the Province to the sacrament of Holy Orders. May the Lord help him to carry out a fruitful ministry, always be obedient to Lord’s will, as it is revealed to him.
