Five new priests!

Sunday, April 27, 2008

Please join me in rejoicing, congratulating, and praying for the five newest priests of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis!

Fr. John Bauer
Fr. John Meyer
Fr. Jon Bennet Tran
Fr. Shane Campbell
Fr. Fernando Ortega

It was a beautiful Mass, and I was particularly struck by the entrance procession, in which all the hundreds of seminarians and priests participated. (Well, the non-diocesan Saint John Vianney men didn't...they were in suits and already in the pews...but the archdiocesan SJV men and all the Saint Paul Seminary men were vested in cassock and surplice and processed in right before the deacons and priests.) Altogether, they took up nearly half the cathedral.

Their seminarian brother posts a bit about it on the Saint Paul Seminary blog, here.
