Former Lutheran ordained priests in Germany

~from CWN

Two former Lutheran ministers have been ordained to the priesthood for the Catholic Church in Germany in recent weeks, and one in Austria.

Father Hans-Tilmann Golde, a former Lutheran and the married father of 3 children, was ordained on June 30 for the Diocese of Eichstatt. In May another former Lutheran cleric, Gerhard Stille, was ordained in Paderborn.

Father Gerhard Hoberth, yet another ex-Lutheran, was recently ordained as a priest of the Vienna, Austria, archdiocese.
