Ordinations have a profound significance for Catholics. The people of Holy Family Church have the joy of rejoicing with the members of the parish who enter religious life, especially on the occasions of priestly ordinations.
Our parishioners know that the priest is not ordained for his family or friends alone. No! The priest “taken from among men, is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins” (Heb. 5,1). The honor bestowed upon the priest is honor bestowed upon the whole Catholic people out of whose midst he is taken.
