Four seminarians, Garrett Bockman, Mark Garrett, Elmer Herrera-Guzman, and Ryan Hiaeshutter, who served at St. Matthew's during the 2018-2019 academic year were ordained to the diaconate in late April 2019. Dominican seminarian Br. Hyacinth Grubb, O.P., who also served us this year, was ordained to the diaconate in March 2019.
In addition, two transitional deacons who have served at St. Matthew's during the past two academic years, Br. Antoninus Samy, O.P. and Deacon Mingwei Li, will be ordained to the priesthood in May or June. We are grateful for the ministries each has pursued here at St. Matthew's.
Let's keep all these men in our prayers as they prepare for and begin their diaconal or priestly ministries.
