Say a prayer of thanksgiving for God's generosity in bringing three men from the Province of St Albert the Great (U.S.A.) to share sacramentally in the ministry of Christ. Cassian Sama, O.P., was ordained to the diaconate, and Michail Ford, O.P., and Patrick Tobin, O.P., were ordained to the priesthood. Father Ford will begin his priestly life as parochial vicar of St Thomas Aquinas parish and Newman Center in West Lafayette, Indiana (Purdue University), while Father Tobin will serve as parochial vicar at St Thomas More parish and Newman Center in Columbia, Missouri (University of Missouri — Columbia). Brother Cassian will complete his studies in St Louis at the Aquinas Institute of Theology, serving in St Louis as a deacon in a local parish.
Ad multos annos!
