Fr. Brian’s Guests

Dear Family and Friends,

I look forward to having you with us to celebrate our ordinations to priestly and diaconal ministry in the Church! You have been waiting a while for this and you’ve made this day possible by your support. Thank you! Please join us for whatever you can attend during the weekend, especially my first Mass the next day (May 19): 10:30am @ Little Flower Parish.

Out-of-town guests: As Brent said, please join us for dinner at the Priory, but make sure to RSVP above!

Gifts: In lieu of personal gifts of any kind, please consider making a donation to our Student community to offset the costs of the ordinations weekend. You can make checks out to the “Dominican Studentate” and include them with a card, if you wish.


 

Deacon Christopher’s Guests

Dear family and friends:
I am excited that you are interested in joining me for my ordination to the diaconate.  I recognize given the fact that I took my solemn vows a little over six months ago, and so many of my family and friends were in attendance, that now attending my ordination is not possible for many.  I will be ordained to the priesthood in May of 2020 and hope that as many people as possible can be in attendance then.

If you are able in fact to be in attendance for my diaconate ordination, please know that I look forward to seeing you, and invite you to take part in our community prayer (Vespers and Lauds) over the weekend, in addition to the Mass of Ordination on Saturday.

Saturday Evening: Following Vespers on Saturday evening, all family is invited to go out to eat with me at Cunetto’s House of Pasta (5453 Magnolia Ave, St. Louis, MO 63139).  Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in joining us.  

Following supper, all friends and family are welcome to join me for a drink at the Whiskey Ring (2651 Cherokee St, St. Louis, MO 63118). 

Sunday Mass: I will be preaching at the 7:30am Mass at St. Anthony of Padua Church (3410 Meramec St, St. Louis, MO 63118), and will be going out to brunch at Rooster (restaurant) following Mass (3150 S Grand Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63118). Please let me know if you are interested in joining us for brunch.
