I am late at blogging this, but better late than never. Four new priests were ordained for the Peoria diocese on May 26 by Bishop Daniel Jenky.
Congratulations to Father Daniel P. Gifford, Father Timothy D. Hepner, Father Joel P. Phelps, and Father Johnathan E. Steffen.
Men who give up their lives for service to Christ through the priesthood are truly extraordinary. This also goes for men and women who dedicate themselves to religious life.
