I want to announce to you that Deacon Rafal Ligenza was ordained a priest on Saturday, May 21 at the Epiphany Cathedral in Venice, Florida.
Deacon Rafal served our parish since last September as he completed his studies at SS. Cyril and Methodius Seminary, the seminary across the street from us. He was ordained for the diocese of Venice which means that he will minister as a priest in the parishes of that diocese.
We congratulate him on his ordination and wish him many happy and successful years as a priest. May God and our Blessed Mother look after him throughout his priesthood. This is a reminder for us to continue to pray that many more will respond to the call to serve the church in the priesthood. Many blessings on the new Fr. Rafal Ligenza.
