Sydney Charles, aged 27 years, of the Seminary of St John Vianney and Uganda Martyrs, Mt St Benedict, was ordained to the priesthood March 7, 1954.

The Catholic News reported on his ordination by His Grace the Archbishop Finbar Ryan OP in the ‘Around the Archdiocese’ section on page 4 of the March 13 issue.

The report stated: “Members of clergy, Sisters and laity witnessed the impressive ceremony at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception”. The Archbishop was assisted on the Throne by Dom Anslem van den Eijnden OSB, Dom Cuthbert Van der Sande OSB served as Deacon and Rev Bro Eugene Gibbs OSB was Sub-Deacon.
