Wonderful Ordination

– More than 70 of our parishioners made the trip to Albany last Saturday to witness the ordination of Fr. Scott VanDerveer to the priesthood of Jesus Christ. The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception was filled to capacity, and there were some 100 priests joining in the celebration, including Fr. Paco and Fr. Michael Alfano. It was a wonderful experience for all.

     At the reception afterwards, Fr. Paco presented Fr. Scott with a gift from the Parish ‑ a white chasuble with the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the front. Fr. Scott will be stationed at St. Mary’s Church in Oneonta, New York, and promised to return to St. Stephen to celebrate Mass for us.
