The following message is shared on behalf of the Holy Family Parish Council of Catholic Men:
It is with great pride that we congratulate Jonathan Paul Reitzel on his ordination to the priesthood on Saturday, May 6th.
For the past 25 years, he has been a member of Holy Family Paris. Jonathan has spent the past 9 years in seminary preparing for this goal.
His life will be to serve and love our lord Jesus Christ as well as shepherd the people of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Council of Catholic Men, on behalf of the parish, would like to congratulate Father Jonathan. He is the fist member of Holy Family Parish to enter the pristhood. He has not done this without the guidance and prayers of his family and from the parish.
He has had thee great uncles enter the priesthood as well as 2 great aunts who were nuns.
There is great love and pride that Jonathan will continue with this tradition.
God be with you Jonathan.
