Thank you to all who helped celebrate the First Mass of Father Ryan Keating.
Last weekend was truly a joyful experience for all who participated in the ordination and First Mass of Father Ryan Keating. We had been looking forward to this moment for many years and with our prayers and support Father Ryan has successfully completed his journey to the priesthood.
Our celebration at St. Louis was an inspiring event thanks to the hard work and planning of many people under the direction of Pam Nordstrom and Tim (Mac) McCarthy. I know there were many who stepped up to help them to make the Mass and reception a joyful celebration. I want everyone to know how grateful I am to all of you who pitched in. I hesitate to name names here because I know I would forget someone and I don’t want anyone to feel unappreciated. So thank you to all of you for all you did, your time and talent did not go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated.
