November 25, 2017, was certainly a day to remember! On that day, Eder Quiñones and Gustavo Baloco were ordained to the priesthood. Natives of Colombia, Fathers Eder and Gustavo were delighted and remain forever grateful for the opportunity to celebrate this special day among their family and friends. The ordination took place in their homeland at the Metropolitan Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Medellín.
Both Fathers Eder and Gustavo will soon begin missionary life as priests. Fr. Eder in Guamal, Colombia, at our mission Nuestra Señora del Carmen and Fr. Gustavo in Stirling, New Jersey at the Shrine of St. Joseph. But, before they begin, they will be concelebrating two very special Masses of Thanksgiving.
Like the majority of our benefactors, distance and opportunity may keep you from attending these Masses. With that in mind, the Mass of Thanksgiving on Sunday, January 14th at 10:00 a.m. (EST) will be live-streamed. Please join our celebration that day by visiting: Mass of Thanksgiving Live-Stream.
