Yesterday was a great day for the diocese. Andy Budzinski, one of my best friends, was ordained priest for the diocese of Fort Wayne South Bend. I have been most fortunate to be able to have gotten to know Fr Andy over these last 6 years. I am really excited to call him my brother priest. Yesterday I told him that I was looking forward to the next 60 years together in the diocese. He said, "you better!" He is always so funny. Fr. Andy was assigned to St. Vincent's parish in Fort Wayne. This afternoon I am going to concelebrate his first mass at Holy Family at 3:00. Please keep praying for Fr. Andy.
Ad multos annos.
