On Saturday, May 6, our seminarian Philip Rathinam will be ordained a transitional deacon at the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica by Archbishop Robert Carlson. All are invited to the 10:00am Ordination Mass. Deacon Philip will assist me and preach the homily at the 11:00am Mass here at MQP on Sunday, May 7.

Philip will be here through May, but will receive a new assignment this summer as he continues to prepare for his Ordination to the Priesthood next year. Philip has been a wonderful presence in our community and especially in our school and PSR! Please congratulate Philip and pray for him as he begins his ordained ministry in the Church.

Join us after 11:00am Mass at Hospitality Sunday on May 7 to say “good-bye”.  Come by to congratulate Philip and wish him luck as he is ordained as a deacon and continues on his journey to becoming a priest.
