Ordination Class of 2019 | Mass of Thanksgiving

Posted on November 19, 2019

On Monday, November 18, 2019 the Class of 2019 came back to Mundelein for the Mass of Thanksgiving to reconnect with old classmates, faculty members and staff. They have been established at their new parishes back in their home dioceses serving for six months, and many men shared stories of joy and excitement in their God-given vocation.

The principal celebrant was Father Carlos Orozco from the Archdiocese of Seattle and the homilist was Father Matthew Schuster, SJC from the Canons Regular of Saint John Cantius.

“I am privileged to stand in that hair breath’s crack between God’s yes to his Church, and the Church’s fiat in response–a fiat resounded throughout the centuries by so many saints, so many martyrs who would give their lives in a total yes. A priest gets to stand there and watch God work, and it is amazing.”

–Father Matthew Schuster, SJC
