Thank God for our priests!

On Saturday, June 28, the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City was blessed by the ordination of five new priests to serve the people of this local Church. It has been 23 years since we have had such a large ordination class! In addition to these new priests, I recently ordained a priest at Saint Gregory’s Abbey and three transitional deacons who, God willing, will be ordained priests for the archdiocese next year. The Lord is indeed answering our prayers and fulfilling his promise by providing shepherds after the mind and heart of Christ. This is certainly an occasion of joy and thanksgiving for the Church in Oklahoma!
