Three men to be ordained priests June 6; Mass will be livestreamed

Bishop Donald Kettler will ordain three men to the priesthood at 10:30 a.m. June 6 at St. Mary’s Cathedral in St. Cloud.

They are:

  • Deacon Thomas Skaja from Annunciation Parish in Mayhew Lake;
  • Deacon Brady Keller from St. Gall Parish in Tintah; and
  • Deacon Patrick Hoeft from St. Louis Parish in Paynesville.

The ordination Mass will be open to family members and invited guests only to ensure physical distancing and everyone’s safety as the diocese continues to transition to larger gatherings.

All people of the diocese are invited to watch the livestream of the Mass at, or on the diocese’s YouTube Channel:

Stories about the three men will be featured in the July issue of The Central Minnesota Catholic magazine.
