    When will in-person reservations be available? As a Solitary Religious my vows are given to the Bishop, and I have already communicated with Bishop Elect Austin Rios, and I feel it important that Religious, especially Solitaries bear witness in person on May 4.

    I was Austin Rios’s youth group leader when he was in middle school and high school in De Pere, Wisconsin. My wife, Jenny, and I are flying from Wisconsin to San Francisco for the consecration. I was wondering if I need to request tickets for the ceremony or any other events. Thanks you.
