My lifelong dream of becoming a Catholic Priest was fulfilled on August 24th, 2014 in St. Louis, Missouri when +Bishop Thomas McKenna, presiding Bishop of the Celtic Rite of the Old Catholic Church conferred upon me Holy Orders.
The Celtic Rite allows priests to be married. so my great joy was to have my wife, Debbie, present and supportive at my ordination. And to be ordained by such a kind and holy man as +Bishop Tom was a special blessing. Each time he laid hands on me and when he anointed my hands with chrism, I felt the Holy Spirit touch me in a powerful way.
