Click this link for the full coverage of his ordination, Fr. Joey Frez was very blessed that her Mom and several members of his family came for his ordination (above photo). The Core Team members in the Filipino Community in Oregon and Salt Lake City were delighted and grateful that they were able to attend and participated in the event (photos on the right). Fr. Pat McNamara, the Pastor of St. Cecilia and several of his professors, mentors and collegues at the Mt. Angel Seminary were able to witness the joyful occasion. Prior to his ordination, he served as a Deacon at St. Cecilia Catholic Church. On September 26th, he will celebrate the 10:45 AM Sunday mass at St. Cecilia. The Parishioners and the Filipino Community will host a welcome reception in the Parish Hall right after his Thanksgiving Mass.

The Filipino Seminarians invited Fr. Joey Frez also to celebrate mass at Mt. Angel Abbey in honor of San Lorenzo Ruiz on Monday, September 27th at 10:00 AM. He will be one of the concelebrants during the Feast of San Lorenzo which will be held at Our Lady of Sorrows on Sunday, September 26th, at 2:00 PM

Please come and join us for the celebrations.

People might be surprised to know that I would have felt fulfilled after achieving everything that I wanted in life. But I only felt the satisfaction when I left behind all that I have worked so hard for and followed the call from God. Fr. Joseph Frez
