From the San Jose Mercury News:

In one of the most spectacular, ancient and rare events for the Diocese of San Jose, a new bishop will be ordained Wednesday at St. Joseph Cathedral Basilica to serve as an auxiliary to Bishop Patrick McGrath. Tickets to the events are so scarce — the seating limit is 750 and every ticket is spoken for — that the event will be streamed live on the diocesan website beginning at 1:30 p.m. Commentators will explain the ordination of Bishop-elect Thomas A. Daly in English and Spanish before the 2 p.m. ceremony, which will begin with a grand procession, all in white, of deacons, priests and bishops, including Cardinal Roger Mahoney of Los Angeles.
