Siouxland Catholic Clergy Ordination, Sioux City

2 Jul

Recently I photographed the ordination of two young men pursuing their dreams at the Sioux City Diocese. One gentleman became a deacon and the other a priest. I am sure the deacon will also eventually become a priest as well. No matter what one’s views of religion, or which sect of religion a person may believe or not believe in, it was evident photographing these two young men of their faith, and also the joy of their families as years’ of hard work came to fruition. The local Bishop noted that each young man came from a different country as compared to Sioux City, Iowa, and Siouxland in general. One is from Mexico, the other from Los Angeles, California. It’s probably true that the proclivities of Mexico closer approximate those of the area. The Catholic Globe, a local diocese newspapers covered the event and put up video and photos for its parishioners and others to see.

No matter what one’s calling in life is, to be able to pursue your dream and help other people along the way is always a blessing. More images of the ordination can be found here.
