Dear Romanian Byzantine Catholic Faithful,
As you may have been made aware, our Major Archbishop Lucian Muresan has received the notification from Pope Benedict that he will be elevated to rank of Cardinal. The ceremony will take place in the Saint Peter Basilica on February 18, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. All those interested to participate at this event have to have a pass to be able to get inside St. Peter on that date at the time specified. The Diocese has put in a request for a number of 10 tickets at this moment. Anyone interested to participate has to make its own reservations (airfare, hotel, local transportation, etc.) but please let us know so we can provide you with tickets that will allow you to go in on that day.
Sunday, February 19, 2012, the newly elevated Cardinal Lucian Muresan will celebrate the Divine Liturgy at 9:30 a.m. Tickets are made available for that event as well. All tickets are FREE. We can provide them to you but we need to know how many would be interested in participating at the above specified events. You can either call the chancery at 330-493-9355 or e-mail me at email@example.com to let me know your name and how many tickets you would need. Thank you.
Very Rev. Ovidiu Marginean, Chancellor
