Please join me in prayer today for these two deacons, Rev. Mr. John Greb and Rev. Mr. John Lankeit (left to right), who are to be ordained to the priesthood tomorrow. Tonight at 7:oo p.m. the Most Reverend Bishop Thomas J. Olmstead, Diocese of Pheonix, and the seminarians of the diocese have invited the faithful to join them in a holy hour for these two men.
Tomorrow will be their ordination to the priesthood, which I will be attending. I look forward immensely to this joyous occasion. I will have the additional pleasure to be present at Fr. John Lankeit's Mass of Thanksgiving on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. Our diocese is blessed to be receiving these two men who have courageously answered God's call to the priesthood.
Please join those of us of the Diocese of Phoenix in offering prayers on behalf of these two men.
