Today we had the great joy of the Mass of Thanksgiving of Fr. Isaiah Mary Molano, OP, a friar of the Province of the Holy Name (California). Fr. Isaiah was ordained LAST June 25th and was finally able to fulfill his promise to come to Summit to offer a Mass of Thanksgiving for his sisters in Summit.
Fr. Isaiah has known us for many years and Sr. Mary Catharine and Sr. Joseph Maria in particular have been his spiritual sisters, praying and offering sacrifices for him through the years for this great and wonderful day!
Providentially, Fr. Gregory Schnakenberg, OP, a classmate was able to be here to be here, also. It's always so nice to see our Brothers at the Altar!
