Priestly Ordination Celebrated

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops' web site has a page of quotes from the new priests ordained this year. Among them is Father Omar who was briefly a member of one of the parishes I serve. His quote:

“People would be surprised to know that nobody spoke to me about religious life until I was 18 years old.”

Father Omar Guanchez - Diocese of Saint Cloud

Father Omar will celebrate Mass at 7pm this Wednesday here in our local parish. Congratulations to the newest Presbyter of our diocese. His quote reminds us fathers and grandfathers how much our sons and daughters deserve our support in discerning their life vocations. The photo is from his Ordination as a Deacon.
