Br. Etienne Ordained Deacon

Br. Etienne Huard, O.S.B. was ordained a deacon Thursday evening. Bishop Johnston, our local ordinary of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, was the ordaining bishop. Family, friends, and the monastic community gathered in the Basilica church for this joyful occasion.

Br. Etienne will complete his final year of theological studies at St. Vincent Seminary (Latrobe, PA) in preparation for his ordination to the priesthood next May.

We offer our heartfelt thanks to God and ask His blessing upon Br. Etienne as he begins his life as an ordained minister.
