BOYNTON BEACH | Despite restrictions of gathering in groups due to COVID-19, thousands of people came together virtually to witness men answering God’s call to religious life these past weeks. These ceremonies gave Catholics, as well as others, quarantined at home, joy, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Technology opened the closed doors of St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary Chapel in Boynton Beach April 25, 2020, as viewers from around the state witnessed the ordination of 13 men from the dioceses of Florida. The Diocese of Palm Beach’s own Alain Waterman was ordained a deacon by Archbishop Thomas Wenski of Miami.
