All six men were ordained on August 14 at Mass in St. Joseph Cathedral downtown.

The new ordinands received their intellectual formation at Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University. The academic work included 20 courses required to earn certificates in Catholic Theology and Catechesis.

In addition to their academic studies, the men received formation in the spiritual, human, and pastoral dimensions of their new ministry.
