Happy News

I thought some of you might be interested in the latest news from the New Orleans Province of the Society of Jesus:

I am happy to inform you that

Mark Mossa, S.J.

has been approved for ordination to the diaconate and priesthood. He will be ordained to the diaconate in the fall of 2007 and to the priesthood in June, 2008.

Your prayers are appreciated as the big days approach.

If you're wondering about dates, it'll be October 6, 2007 in Boston, and tentatively June14, 2008 in New Orleans. Y'all come!

This is wonderful!
I read your post this afternoon while still at school. The computers at school will not let us leave comments - safety feature for the students. I have been anxious to get to my home computer to tell you how happy I am for you!
God bless!

Congratulations Mark. It is a very long road that you have travelled already. The months ahead must seem awfully short by comparison.

Woo Hoo!

Wish I could be there for one or both, sadly I don't see either in the cards.

I will be done with Gradual School in May of 2008.

I will be with you in spirit both times though.

I have lit many candles for that one. Does this mean I can relax about you and focus my worry on John Brown now?
