NEWS AND EVENTS

News Releases

Cardinal Blase J. Cupich Ordained Six Priests for the Archdiocese of Chicago

Ceremony at Holy Name Cathedral on Saturday, May 20th

Cardinal Blase J. Cupich ordained six priests at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 20 at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago. The men range in age from 27 to 44 and come from the United States, Poland and Mexico.

Each man completed four to six years of graduate study at the University of Saint Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary or in Rome and served for a period of time as a deacon. After ordination, the new priests will serve in parishes in Chicago, Niles, Park Ridge, Volo and Waukegan.

The priesthood is the second order or grade in ordained ministry in the Catholic Church. Catholics believe that the priesthood was instituted by Jesus, himself. By ordination the priest becomes a co-worker with the bishop and under his authority exercises the three apostolic functions as a teacher of doctrine, a priest of sacred worship and a minister of pastoral leadership. Pastors are responsible for the pastoral care of their parishes. Each of these men will be assigned as an associate pastor, assisting a more senior priest in these pastoral roles.

Miguel Venegas Aceves, 28, from Guadalajara, Mexico, will have his first assignment at St. Agnes of Bohemia Parish in Chicago's Little Village neighborhood.

Radley Alcantara, 29, from Portage, Indiana, will have his first assignment at St. Anastasia Parish in Waukegan.

Timothy Anastos, 28, from Mundelein, Illinois, who studied in Rome, will have his first assignment at Mary, Seat of Wisdom Parish in Park Ridge.

Moise Navarro, 27, from Chicago, will have his first assignment at Most Blessed Trinity Parish in Waukegan.

Trenton Rauck, 44, from Indianapolis, will have his first assignment at St. Peter Parish in Volo.

Przemyslaw Tomczyk, 28, from Lodz, Poland, will have his first assignment at St. John Brebeuf Parish in Niles.

FATHER BROST INVITES OLW PARISHIONERS TO JOIN ABRAHAMIC PEACE TOUR Ú

OLW parishioners are among the early participants in discussions leading to a proposed "Abrahamic Peace Tour" to be led by Father Corey Brost, C.S.V.

Father Brost, former president of St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights, is one of the founders of the "Children of Abraham Coalition," a coalition of Muslims, Jews and Christians in the Chicago area that has been working for interfaith peace.

"Jews, Muslims and Christians all trace their roots to a man of faith who heard God's call, who journeyed from home in confidence that God had a mission for him and whose faithfulness to that mission still impacts the world today," Father Brost said.

"Join a group of Abraham's descendants - Jews, Muslims and Christians - as they travel to the land called holy by all his descendants. There, we will dialogue with and learn from leaders of all three religions who are working for peace."

OLW parishioners - or others - who are interested in learning more about the proposed trip may contact OLW Deacon Michael Madison at 708-259-2814 for more information. Or they may e-mail Father Brost at
cbrost @viatorians.com
