Bishop Hartmayer ordained 17 men to the priesthood in Gboko, Benue State, Nigeria on July 6 in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.
Bishop Hartmayer said the purpose of his trip was two-fold:
About 70 girls and 60 boys from across south Georgia attended two camps in late June, sponsored by the Diocese of Savannah’s Vocations Office. The three-night/four-day sessions at St. Mary’s Home in Savannah were packed with traditional camp outdoor games and skits, as well as Mass, reconciliation, adoration, and devotional talks.
