St. John’s Celebrates Ordinations

June 06, 2016


“Father, in every generation you provide ministers of Christ and the Church.” So begins the prayer for priestly vocations.

It is our honor to introduce you to the latest generation of priests – our 2016 ordination class of 14 men. We now send forth Fr. Jeffrey Baker, Fr. Joshua Diener, Fr. Luis Espinoza, Fr. Paolo Garcia, Fr. Anthony Garcias, Fr. Tomas Guillen, Fr. Gregorio Hidalgo, Fr. Carlos Martinez, Fr. Matthew Murphy, Fr. David Otto, Fr. Ethan Southard, Fr. Dominic Vu, Fr. Hau Vu and Fr. Albert Van der Woerd.  These men are being ordained for service in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Diocese of Orange and Diocese of San Bernardino.

In its current issue, The Tidings features our nine new priests in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.  We’re happy to share the link with you:

We ask that you keep all of our newly-ordained in your prayers as they begin their priestly service in their new parishes.
