This morning, three men were ordained by Bishop Loverde as priests of the Diocese of Arlington. Fr. Jason Weber, Fr. Mick Kelly and Fr. Ed Bresnahan have joined 160 other diocesan priests in service to the Catholics of Northern Virginia.
Fr. Bresnahan, in a reflection published several days before being ordained, expressed his feelings about becoming a priest, “There is a feeling of joy that comes along with doing the very thing that my heart has been set on even before I knew it. There is a simple joy and a reassuring peace because I’m doing, and I can’t wait to do, what God wants from me.”
Please join Bishop Loverde in welcoming our new priests and continuing to pray for their vocation to the priesthood.
