Nativity of Mary welcomes a new Teaching-Parish seminarian, Ryan Andrew! Ryan is a seminarian for the Diocese of Des Moines, Iowa. He is currently in formation for the priesthood at St. Paul Seminary and has been assigned to our parish for the next few years to offer service, to learn about parish life from us, and just to give us extra cause to rejoice. I was giving Ryan a tour of the school last week. One of the first-graders saw us and whispered, “Look, there are two Father Zehrens!” Thanks be to God that’s not the case, but if you see a young man in clerical dress around the parish in the days to come, give him a hearty Nativity of Mary welcome.
