Dear parishioners of Guardian Angels,
As you may know, Cincinnati’s Ordinations are fast approaching. The time since the beginning of my internship here at Guardian Angels has flown by for me, due in no small part to the privilege I’ve had of being involved here at the parish. I have been very happy to share these past couple of years with this community and I hope you know that you will all continue to be in my prayers as I begin my priestly ministry.
Of course, all of you are welcome to attend the Ordination Mass, which will take place at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains in downtown Cincinnati on Saturday, 18 May, at 11:00 am. As there will be nine of us being ordained for Cincinnati, I suspect it will be crowded: plan on being there early if you come!
I also wanted to invite all of you to assist at my first Solemn Mass of Thanksgiving, which I will be offering here at Guardian Angels the next day, Sunday, 19 May, at 12:00 noon. I am very excited to be able to offer this Mass here, and I hope you can make it! There will be a light reception afterward at which I will be happy to offer first blessings as well.
Until then, please continue to keep me in your prayers as I will keep you in mine.
Yours in Christ,
Deacon Christian Cone-Lombarte
