Those being ordained are: Rev. Mr. Kenneth C. Brabazon; Rev. Mr. David M. Friel; and Rev. Mr. Christopher P. Landis.

Editor's Note: Individual releases on each new priest are available at Photographs of the Ordination candidates are available by e-mailing or calling the Office for Institutional Advancement at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary at 610-785-6231.
