“Now we have seven new priests…”

June 04, 2017

“Today is a day of great joy for all of us in the family of God in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles,” said Archbishop José Gomez as he ordained seven St. John’s seminarians.  These are among our 18 seminarians who are being ordained for priestly service in the dioceses and religious orders served by St. John’s.

We join the Archbishop in giving thanks for our new priests: Fr. Juan Martin Barajas, Fr. José Castañeda, Fr. Joseph Choi, Fr. Ronald Clark, Fr. Martin Gonzalez Pacheco, Fr. Timothy Grumbach and Fr. Robert McGowan.

In the words of our Archbishop, “let us continue to give thanks to God for vocations to the priesthood.”
