A First Mass at St John Cantius in Chicago

This past Saturday, Nathan Ford, a member of the Canons Regular of St John Cantius in Chicago, was ordained to the priesthood, and on the next day, celebrated his first solemn Mass. The deacon of the Mass, Br. Joseph Brom, was ordained to the diaconate the previous Saturday; the superior of the Canons, Fr Joshua Caswell, served as the assistant priest, and H.E. Excellency Bishop Joseph Perry, Auxiliary of Chicago, attended in choir. Congratulations to Fr Ford and Br Brom, to their families and their religious community – ad multos annos! We also thank a member of the parish, Mr Basil Damukatis, for share these pictures of the Mass with us, a nice series of views taken from the church’s gallery.
