Today is the big day! This afternoon, Bishop-elect Robert Barron will be ordained Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles during the Mass of Episcopal Ordination. The Most Reverend José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles, will preside over the Mass, which will be held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.
The ordination service begins at 2:00pm PDT (5:00pm EDT, 4:00pm CDT).
