From The Pastor

Saying “Adiós” to Father Ryan

06-17-2018Fr. Michael Straley


Next weekend we will say, “Adios” to Fr. Ryan; he will celebrate his last Masses with us at the English Masses.  Of course, he will be missed greatly. It is such a privilege to have newly ordained priests with us as they bring so  much new thinking to our parish. Fr. Ryan will especially be missed at the school, where the younger children enjoyed his magic tricks so much.

Fr. Paul Sullivan recently said that he thinks I have had more newly ordained priests than any other pastor, not just at OLPH, but throughout my time as pastor. For me, the newly ordained help to keep me up to date on theology and what is being taught to our new priests; yes, they are a little more work at times but always worth it. For the parish, they help us to better understand our Catholic faith: some are more traditional than others, some more liturgical and others bring different gifts. All are faithful Catholic priests and help us become better Catholics ourselves.

Please take the time to thank Fr. Ryan for all he has brought to us.
