Traditional Diaconal Ordination of Diocesan Seminarian

In the great bastion of Traditional practices in the Congregatio Solesmensis, the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault (Notre-Dame de Fontgombault), in Indre (central France), the Bishop of Fréjus-Toulon, Dominique Rey, ordained one of his seminarians to the major order of the Diaconate, according to the Traditional Pontificale Romanum. The new Deacon was formed in Fontgombault.

As Riposte Catholique recalls, it is the fourth time a diocesan seminarian of Fréjus-Toulon is introduced to the major Orders by way of the Traditional rites of Holy Orders by Bp. Rey.

Has this man, or the others, been Tonsured, received the Minor Orders, or the Subdiaconate?

Bishop Rey, in my mind you are a Cardinal already. Thank you for your service to our Catholic Church.

That's a good question, Kathryn Rose.

And what does it mean to be "formed in Fontgombault"? Are the monks operating a seminary?

Not exactly, but the formation of their own priests is mostly made inside the abbey, so I would guess that this new Deacon's formation also happened there because his bishop considered it more suitable for him.

He is Polish. Former carmelite seminarian who in 2011 enter the Fontgombault Abbey where he repeated his theological studies (already done in Poland) - but eventually he decided to be diocesan priest in Frejus-Tuloun. He obtained lower ordinations and subdiaconat in the mid of May in private Chapel of bp. Rey - a think.
