“These priests are also the first group of men that I have ever ordained …”
The ordination took place May 25 in Washington, D.C., at the beautiful National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
Bishop Barron says
The Order of Preachers has had a profound impact on my life, and I am grateful to the Dominicans for inviting me to ordain these men as priests of Jesus Christ.
These priests are also the first group of men that I have ever ordained, so they will always hold a special place in my prayers and in my heart.
