Last Saturday (June 4, 2011), the Diocese of San Jose was blessed to have 3 new priests that were ordained by Bishop Patrick J. McGrath at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph. The streaming video of the ordination can be viewed here, courtesy of the Diocese. Let us remember Fr. Angelo David, Fr. Steve Kim and Fr. Andrew Nguyen in our prayers!

My turn to get the blessing!
Me and Fr. Angelo David. We're both product of the Salesian schools in the Philippines (he studied at Don Bosco Makati, I studied at Don Bosco Mandaluyong). He did introduce me to his brother, who also studied in DB Mandaluyong but who's ahead of me by four years.
Fr. Angelo David with his family. His brother told me that they flew all the way from New Zealand!
