AXIOS! Father Michael Hayes

On June 29th Father Michael Hayes was ordained to the priesthood. We thank him and Alessandra for answering the call. A parish vocation is a BIG deal and we look forward to their visits and watching them grow in their ministry.

Fr. Michael - we look forward to celebrating with you when you serve your first liturgy here later this summer. AXIOS! and Mnohaya Lita!

Below is an interesting podcast episode about Fr. Michael and Alessandra’s story as well as clips of the ordination liturgy and celebration.

Photos below are from Fr. Michael’s first Vespers “at home”. More ordination photos to come.

note: another parish vocation ordination will take place on the Feast of Saint Elias (July 20th). Subdeacon Cyril Kennedy will be ordained to the Diaconate! more info here
