This past Saturday, May 26, we celebrated the ordination our Dominican brother, Fr. Emmanuel Francis Taylor, OP, to the priesthood at St. Dominic's Church, San Francisco. On Sunday morning, he celebrated his first mass here at St. Albert's. It was a very joyful weekend for all of us to witness this important event in the life and vocation of Fr. Emmanuel, whose priesthood, no doubt, will be a valuable gift to the life and ministry of our province. Later this summer he will begin his first priestly assignment just across the Bay at St. Dominic's Church. Please join us in congratulating Fr. Emmanuel and in praying for a fruitful life of ministry for the sake of God's kingdom!
UPDATE: Many more pictures and a copy of the bishop's homily from the ordination are available at this page on our province website.
