In four short weeks, on Saturday, May 21 at 9:00 am Mass at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, Deacon Tom Olson along with eight other men will be ordained to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ by Cardinal Sean O'Malley. As you know, Tom has been assigned to Saint Columbkille Parish as a seminarian, initially in formation to be a Jesuit Priest, but for the past two years to be ordained a Priest for the Archdiocese of Boston. Here at Saint Columkille's we have been on Tom's vocational journey as he has grown in wisdom and Spirit. His ordination is a celebration of faith and perseverance for himself, his family, and also for the parish.READ MORE
