It is with great gratitude and joy that we announce that on September 3, 2011, two of our brothers will receive the sacrament of Holy Orders.

Juan Pablo PatiƱo MSpS will be ordained a priest, and Juan Antonio Romero will be ordained a deacon.  The ordination mass will take place at 11:00am at St. Matthew Catholic Church and will be presided by the Archbishop of San Antonio, his excellency Gustavo Garcia Siller MSpS.

The address of the Church is:
St. Matthew Catholic Church
475 SE Third Avenue

All are invited to this great event.  We also take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported our two brothers in their formation, and for all who generously support our formation houses.  Please continue praying for Juan Pablo and Juan Antonio, that the Lord may continue to prepare them for this singular grace that they are about to receive.

We have moved!
