I have been thinking about vocations a lot lately. Ordinations have a tendency to do that for me especially when one of our parishioners is the person being ordained. St. Joseph Cathedral parishioner Barry Reuwsaat, son of Richard & Jane Reuwsaat, became the newest member of the priestly fraternity for the Diocese of Sioux Falls this past week. It is a great honor for a family and a parish to have one of their own respond to the call of priesthood or religious life. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves of how special and important that event is.
I came across the picture above and realized that all three priests are products of the Cathedral parish (Fr. Barry, Fr. Paul & Fr. John Rutten). To have three priests come from our parish in the last 15 years is something to be proud of and thankful for. Let us continue to pray for them and our parish Seminarians: Joe Scholten, who will be ordained to the transitional diaconate on September 29 in Rome and Jacob Doty in his last year of college seminary.
