New priests called to serve all

Richard Aubol, Mark Botzet and Gregory Sauer were ordained to the priesthood June 15 at St. Mary’s Cathedral in St. Cloud. In his homily, Bishop Kettler told the men they are a gift to the church and the Diocese of St. Cloud. He encouraged them to help people reconnect with God through their prayer and witness and to be priests of joy and love. “You have been called to serve all,” he told them, “especially the poor and those on the peripheries.”
