I had the honor yesterday of attending the ordination of Father William D. Brenna, a new priest of the Diocese of Superior, in that city's Cathedral of Christ the King yesterday. Another priest and two transitional deacons were also ordained at that liturgy by Bishop Peter Christiansen.
Father Brenna (that's what he prefers), a second vocation priest from Sacred Heart seminary in Hales Corner near Milwaukee, will be celebrating his first Mass in the Extraordinary Form at 5:15 p.m. today, June 8 at the Church of St. Augustine in South St. Paul.
There are special blessings to be received upon attendance at the First Mass of a newly ordained priest.
Father J.P. Echert changed the normal Mass location for this event which would have been at Holy Trinity parish in South St. Paul.
St. Augustine's is located at 408 Third Street N in South St. Paul
