Dear Parishioners of St. Joseph and St. Ann,
Thank you for your prayers and support throughout my time as a seminarian. My first experience in priestly formation was serving in your parish over the summer. During that summer, you gave me an experience of parish ministry. You invited me into your homes and into your lives. We went with the youth to New Orleans, we did Stations of the Cross at Rock Chapel, and some of us even went to Rome together.
I have been so grateful for the experience of your faith, the gift of your continued prayers, and your support as I studied and discerned my calling to the priesthood. Now as I prepare for my ordination, I would like to invite you to celebrate with me.
You are invited to my ordination at 10:00 am on May 18, 2019 at the Cathedral of St. John Berchmans. You are also invited to my Mass of Thanksgiving that same day at St. Jude in Benton at 5:00 pm. A reception will follow, and all are invited.
Thank you for everything you have done for me and the other seminarians of the diocese of Shreveport. Please know that you are in my
prayers, and that I look forward to serving the diocese of Shreveport as a priest.
With great gratitude,
Deacon Kevin Mues
